blank lines in files (9 posts)

    All of the php files I download with Fetch have blank lines between every line of code. Is there any way to stop this? If I download them on my PC with WSFTP, I'm not getting the blank lines, so I'm assuming it's a setting in Fetch.

    Does it make a difference if you set the Remote > Mode menu to "Text" or "Binary", rather than "Automatic"?

    Thanks,

    No. I tried both and the blank lines are still there when I download.

    What editor are using to look at the files on your Mac?

    Thanks,

    Coda

    When I open an older local backup of the same file I'm using to test this in Coda, it doesn't have the blank lines, so I think it has to be Fetch.

    I just downloaded it using Transmit in Coda and there are no blank lines. I'd prefer to use Fetch, because I often have huge downloads going while I'm working.

    Could you try the following?

    1) Choose "Binary" from the Remote > Mode menu in Fetch
    2) Download the PHP file
    3) Select the file in the Finder and choose "Compress" from the File menu
    4) Choose "Fetch Transcript" from the Window menu in Fetch, and then Save a Copy as... from the File menu
    5) Email the compressed PHP file and the saved Fetch Transcript to bugs@fetchsoftworks.com

    I will try to get to the bottom of this.

    Thanks!
