Hello to anyone who wandered into this thread. I’m working as an independent developer nowadays. While my long experience has left me well-prepared for many aspects of this change, I’m finding that simple things trip me up once in a while. The big corporation solution is not the same as what a small business would need.
Case in point is sharing a code base between Mac and Windows. In my former life, the company used [color=#0080FF]Perforce[/color] as a code management solution. This gave source code control and also managed the linefeed issue that Mac users experience after their code has gone through a Windows editor. But Perforce is structured for larger companies using a dedicated server on a network (let’s leave out virtual servers for just a minute). My world consists of a Mac Pro stuffed with memory, hard drives and a couple of virtualizers.
I would imagine that many–if not most–of the developers on this forum live in a world that’s not too different from mine. Do you have any favorite ways of dealing with issues of source code control and linefeed sanity? Thanks much for any comments.
