Which particular files are you thinking of?

The only files that *must* have proper line endings to build Tomcat correctly on
a Windows system are the batch scripts.  Ant, and the Java compiler, are
perfectly happy with Unix line endings.

Be that as it may ... Larry Isaacs was kind enough to convert line endings in
the "" file that is available in the downloads
