Git thinks every file modified because of timestamp difference — how to fix?

I’m moving a repository between 2 Windows servers, so I zipped up the whole repository on the old server and unzipped it on the new server — no other changes. However the 2 servers have different timezones, so all the file timestamps on the new server are off by exactly 3 hours (the difference in […]

Git automatically changing file extensions

I have a git repo with some fortran source code with the file extension .for on windows. This code is compiled and run by a 3rd party software that throws an error if the file extension is not .for. A rather annoying feature of this 3rd party software is that, on linux, it requires a […]

I had this code running in a Node.js codebase for awhile: if (os.platform() === ‘win32’) { stdout = fs.openSync(‘NUL’, ‘a’); it put a ghost file (‘NUL’) on my machine at the root of the project, and I can’t git rm it or delete it permanently.
