Zend Studio: unix compatible source files

How to set file encoding to UTF-8 and line-endings for new files to Unix, so that text files are saved in a format that is not specific to the Windows OS and most easily shared across heterogeneous developer desktops:

  • Navigate to the Workspace preferences (General:Workspace)
  • Change the Text File Encoding to UTF-8
  • Change the New Text File Line Delimiter to Other and choose Unix from the pick-list

Note: to convert the line endings of an existing file, open the file in Eclipse and choose File : Convert Line Delimiters to : Unix
