In case the user wants to port the code written in Unix / Linux to windows, there will be a issue when the editor of windows read the code. Please read this tip to sort out that issue.


We can add a line in post compilation script which will take care introducing the windows line ending.

Whenever I build my project all line endings of my sources are fixed. Note that NetBeans preserves the line ending settings, so it's not necessary to do it every time. If you don't want to do this during every build (when having too many classes) you can create your own target, which you will call on demand. It is automatically added into the context menu:

 <target name="EOL sweeper">
        <fixcrlf srcdir="src" eol="crlf"/>     
 <target name="-post-compile">
        <fixcrlf srcdir="${src.dir}" eol="crlf"/>
