CVS, Cygwin, & IDEA 5

Is there some way that I can use the IDEA CVS operations on the same directory tree that I use Cygwin's CVS tools? Right now there are line ending differences in some of the control files that result in messages that say something like "Fill foo is in the way. Please move it."

Any suggestions?

Hello Steve,

Is there some way that I can use the IDEA CVS operations on the same
directory tree that I use Cygwin's CVS tools? Right now there are line
ending differences in some of the control files that result in
messages that say something like "Fill foo is in the way. Please move
it."

Any suggestions?


Java CVS library used in IDEA operates line.separator System property for
CVS Meta files. The workaround would be to write IDEA plugin which does nothing,
but overwrites this property with the Unix line style separator value.

Well... sounds simple enough. What other consequences will there be from that change?

This isn't a setting that I can set in an options, properties or lax file, is it?

IIUC, you can change the line-endings used by cygwin. I think that might
be a better approach.

If you have platform default line separator in Settings | Code Style, then
it will change. So, it's recommended to specify the one you need explicitly.
There are probably other minor things but they should not affect your development.

file, is it?


I am not aware of any way to do it via properties.
