Fun fact: you can't name any file anywhere in windows 10 "aux.txt" or "aux" anything with any extension, because it was a reserved name in CP/M before dos was a thing.

If you commit "aux.txt" to a git repo, you break it for windows users. If you distribute "aux.txt" in a zip file, windows computers cannot extract it without error.

@unlofl i once created a kicad project containing a "con.sch" for connectors.
could not checkout the repo on Windows.
would have left me stunning if i dind't come form the "copy con ..." era ;)


@xor @unlofl The copy con era... Wow. That takes me back.

A:\> copy con autoexec.bat
