Esteemed Git users,
What i do:
1. Create a script.r using Emacs/ESS.
2. Make some modifications to script.r with the nice diff gui, Meld
3. Commit these modifications using git commit -am "my message"
4. Reopen script.r in Emacs/ESS to continue working.
The lines added (&/edited ?) using Meld all end with ^M which i
certainly don't want. Lines not added/edited with Meld do NOT end with ^M.
There are plenty of posts around about these being line endings used for
windows which can appear when working on a script under a *nix OS which
has previously been edited in a Windows OS. This is not the case here -
everything is taking place on Ubuntu 12.04.
FWIW: the directory is being synced by dropbox; and in Meld, Preferences
> Encoding tab, "utf8" is entered in the text box.
Current work around is running in a terminal: dos2unix /path/to/script.r
which strips the ^M's
But this just shouldn't be necessary and I'd really appreciate the
reflections & advice on how to stop inducing these ^M's !
