Subject MSVC Projects [was: source reading]
Date Sun, 18 Nov 2001 06:11:13 GMT
MSVC folks will be very disappointed if they grab an apache or httpd
tarball without changing linefeeds to cr/lf pairs in all text files.
That applies to .tar.gz/.tar.Z distributions.

You are best grabbing the latest beta (
or alpha ( as a .zip file.  The .zip versions
we create are the same image, with cr/lf line endings, and include .mak
files for MSVC 5.0 users to build from the command line, that aren't kept 
around in cvs.

CVS is an option as well, but only the native Win32 version.  If you use
the cygwin port, you will end up with unix text files (not cr/lf endings)
so you would need to convert all the files anyways.  The Win32 port of
CVS is available from and
instructions for anonymous cvs access are at
but be warned, that won't compile all the time on win32 (although its
buildable much more often than not, lately :)

Best of luck.
