There have been some vague non-specific comments on this thread like
"one very popular code editor".
Instead of being vague, I'll be specific.
If you're a Visual Studio user, the "stripem" add-on allows you to
enforce a particular line ending for file names matching a regular
expression. Where I work, we require LF line endings for source
files and I have used this add-on to enforce that requirement. It
works great and handles new files and existing files alike. *poof*
No need to remember to do a manual step anymore.
