Description: ------------ Running the Generic.Files.LineEndingsSniff on a file without any new-lines results in the Sniff reporting that the file has the wrong line-endings. Expected result: ---------------- That a file with no line-endings is treated as having the correct line-endings. Actual result: -------------- That a file with no line-endings is reported as having the INCORRECT line-endings.

PHP_CodeSniffer has specific code in the EOL detection method that checks if there is no EOL char on the first line (a one-line file) and sets the EOL char to \n in this case. Your standard must be enforcing the use of an EOL char that is not \n, which is where the error comes from. I need to change the sniff so it knows that this is a special case.

Fixed in github repo: 3697b6674ccde8e But many other sniffs also use the EOL char, so you may come up against other errors in custom standards.

Thanks. So far I have not come across any other sniffs that cause issues with Windows line-endings, but if I do I will log bugs for them.
