On Windows, FSPythonScripts may use DOS lineends. >I was experiencing difficulty on a Windows platform.

However, there is another caveat: Sometimes files with DOS lineends end up in CVS (maybe SVN) (in your own that of the developpers). When they are extracted from Windows, then the DOS lineend "\r\n" can become "\r\r\n" and that Python does not like even under Windows. You can easily find out whether you have a lineend problem by examining your files with a binary viewer (do not know what such a binary viewer is under Windows -- under *nix, "od" is one). -- Dieter _______________________________________________ Zope maillist - Zope@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev )
