LF, CR, CR+LF, (oh and tar balls!) - El Forum - 04-11-2009

For anyone interested in what exactly I'm talking about, read about newlines here.

Why does CodeIgniter release their source with CR+LF vs LF?

Why is there no tarball available?

EDIT: Simplified my questions Tongue

P.S. Mods, sorry for the wrong category post. I'd phrased my question slightly different, please move accordingly.

I'm guessing here, but I imagine the developers took the decision to use a zip based on their target audience. It does make sense - you can have five Linux users asking *where* the tarball is instead of five hundred Windows users asking *what* a tarball is ;-)
