Mac/Linux sharing files to Windows users on github: problems with new lines

Robert Rankin
Dear Mac or Linux users,
I am trying to share capture-recapture R source code and JAGS models on
Github.
I am writing the scripts in Emacs on a GNU/linux Ubuntu machine. When
Windows users download my scripts, they get a single line of code (no line
breaks) and the JAGS models fail. What is your best-practises for getting
*nix scripts to work and read properly on Windows through Github?

I am using the program unix2dos (in the ubuntu repositories) to convert the
*nix line-breaks to the Windows line-breaks, and this seems to work when I
download from Github and open on a Windows machine with notepad or
notepad++. However, other Windows users still can't get the JAGS models and
R source code to load properly.

Here is my github directory for windows:
https://github.com/faraway1nspace/PCRD_JAGS_demo/tree/master/WINDOWS

Can any Mac or Linux user share their workflow?
Thank you,
Robert

Dear Robert,

Change your line ending settings in git. See

To call in the statistician after the experiment is done may be no more
than asking him to perform a post-mortem examination: he may be able to say
what the experiment died of. ~ Sir Ronald Aylmer Fisher

The combination of some data and an aching desire for an answer does not
ensure that a reasonable answer can be extracted from a given body of data.
