I have been working on a Drupal.org project and I want to make sure that pass all the coding standards. For some reason I got these problem with the README.txt encoding and I dont know how to solve it.

 ./README.txt: UTF-8 Unicode (with BOM) English text, with CRLF line terminators README.txt
  • Bad line endings were found, always use unix style terminators
  • ./README.txt: the byte order mark at the beginning of UTF-8 files is discouraged, you should remove it.

Can anyone tell me how to solve this problem ? I'm currently using Sublime Text 2 and I save my README.txt as UTF-8 Unicode with BOM and this did not fix my problem.

Here is the README.txt https://gist.github.com/darol100/e24059dbacc4f7e205ad http://pareview.sh/pareview/httpgitdrupalorgsandboxdarol1002309319git


In Settings - User config, you should set

"default_line_ending": "unix",

Also, when saving file, select UTF-8 Unicode without BOM - that's exactly what you were told here:

the b​yte o​rder m​ark at the beginning of UTF-8 files is discouraged

Emphasis mine.

Taken from Fixing Sublime Text 2 line endings?
