I downloaded some CVS stuff (and SSH stuff) so I can try out Boost's CVS
access on SourceForge. I downloaded Boost 1.28.0 this way; before I
downloaded a big ZIP file. I noticed some size differences:
14,940,955 bytes actually used
16.9 MB of allocation space
17,977,695 bytes actually used
26.1 MB of allocation space
The installations were on different drives, but they both had a 2KB
allocation block size. Was a lot of stuff added to Boost in this version,
or does CVS add a lot of overhead, or does my client's (Mac CVS Pro 2.7d3)
CVS implementation add extra overhead?
I turned on ISO Latin-1 translation in my CVS options, so people's names so
up correctly. However, two files had weird line spacing, looking like
double space. The files were:
Maybe someone wrote these files on DOS/Windows, uploaded them in binary
(mistake!), and I downloaded them assuming they were UNIX text, converting
the CR-LF to CR-CR.
Also, a filename longer than 31 characters sneaked through. What I got was:
Can it be fixed?
