Difference in Export from Linux and Windows Servers

XPP 9.2.2.0 - Microsoft Windows Server 2012

We updated our XPP and switched from a Linux Server to a Microsoft Windows Server. We have noticed when exporting from the Windows server, we are getting extra carriage returns in our files, which is affecting some search and replace scripts. Has anyone else noticed this happening?

Thank you

  • Pam,

    Do you know that you can force fromxsf to use either linux or windows type of line endings?
    Adding either a -dos or -unix to your fromxsf command will tell XPP to use either 'windows' type or 'unix' type of line endings.

    I would think that in your case, it might be just as simple as adding the -unix option to the fromxsf command when you do the export.

    If you are doing the export from the pathfinder interface, it might be as simple as:

    Hope this is what you are looking for...
