I think we have misunderstanding here. I was wondering not about
Windows/Unix line endings in source files, but rather line endings used
in string literals in KiCad source code, for example:
100: simCmd += wxString::Format( "%s\r\n", dir );
217: aFormatter->Print( 0, "%s\n", (const char*)
410: wxStringTokenizer tokenizer( text, "\r\n" );
483: aFormatter->Print( 0, "%s\n", (const char*) dir.c_str() );
Maybe they should be unified somehow?
In the first example, we are writing the netlist in the pspice format.
Spice actually requires the carriage return (or did for many years) and
so we write that for compatibility.
In the second example, this is tokenizing a string, so we accept either
\r, \n or both as delimiters.
I had a quick look through the code base and I only see one example
where we might suggest changing it. This is in the sim frame csv export
function. We hard-code \r\n here but I think that's still OK as it
assures compatibility with Windows and doesn't negatively affect
Mac/Linux. However, it might make sense to add a check box here with an
option to save using Windows line endings or standard.
