Topic "extra carriage returns in source"

Author Message



I'm not convinced that this is caused by WinSCP but SCP'ing or SFTP'ing a directory from my UNIX host causes some html files to have additonal and evenly distributed carriage returns in the source code. I switched on the text transfer while SCP'ing instead of automatic but still no luck. Any thoughts on why this is happening?

WinSCP 3.4.2 (Build 197)

The encoding of text files is sometimes altered by WinSCP to UNIX (CR/CR/LF) instead of windows DOS (CR/LF). Upgrading to resolved this problem - must have been a bug...

Does it mean you no longer have the problem? That's strange, since the last fix to text/ascii mode transfers were in 3.4.2, which you were actually using.
