Code listings in old forums

Post by guest » Sat 07 Apr 2018, 17:17

An oddity that has arisen in archiving the old forums is that code listings embedded in posts have lost their end-of-line codes, and appear as one long line! Not the end of the world - lines are still typically separated by six or more consecutive space characters so the original code can be reconstructed fairly easily - but strange nevertheless.

I found out what the problem was: the old Linux-versus-Windows line-termination difference (LF in one case, CRLF in the other). I've re-uploaded the HTML files in binary mode to fix the issue. I'll need to liaise with David Williams to get the old BB4W forum fixed in the same way.

All fixed now thanks to DW's cooperation.
