= Git notes = Windows users in particulary should take note of the Line Endings section.
== Line Endings == This is a Liux/Windows cross-platform project. Because of this and git's behavior, file line-endings are important to get right and keep consistent.
The default for all new files in this repo is to use UNIX-style "LF" endings. The only time Windows-style line endings "CRLF" should be used is if some Windows-specific file requires them to work properly.
=== Git settings === For Windows users, edit .git/config and under [core] add the setting: autocrlf = false
This will preserve line-endings as they exist in the repo.
=== Visual Studio ===
Visual Studio does not have a setting for "always use LF"; to save a file with different line ends you must use the "File | Advanced Save Options" dialog and then re-save the file.
git diff before committing; if every line in a file is marked as
changed then you probably converted CRLF to LF accidentally. Resave the file
and re-diff before committing.
= Header Files = Compilation on Windows with Visual Studio uses the wxWidgets pre-compiled header. Including this header will include everything otherwise available through "wx/wx.h"
Linux builds do not have this header available, and must explicitly include "wx/wx.h".
To include files in a cross-platform way, use this pattern:
#ifndef WX_PRECOMP #include <wx/wx.h> #endif // Other includes not defined in wx/wx.h go here for both platforms. // Example: #include <wx/arrstr.h>
For code that does not require the full wx/wx.h header (usually non-GUI code that makes use of wx core types), include a smaller set of standard includes within the WX_PRECOMP block if appropriate.
