    Hi,

    I am developing a ruby package under linux. When I packaged it into a
    gem and installed it on a win32 box, everything looked scary because of
    the linux <-> dos line endings. (there are examples and tutorials etc -
    and after all maybe someone wants to view the source code, too)

    My question is: before packaging the stuff for win32, do you run a rake
    task or something to unix2dos the files? Or this is left to the users on
    the win32 side?

    Thanks,
    Peter

    I certainly don't package it special. I have to assume that their
    text editor will be smart enough to handle it.
