Hey guys,
In my readme.txt file I have included example command lines on a windows platform, should I do the same for a Unix/Linux platform, or is it not needed?
Thoughts?

Is there a difference in you command line between Windows and UNIX?
Either way, part of your readme.txt is to tell them the OS you built it on. I don't think they can grade you down becuase you don't know how to use UNIX, so I think the Windows command like itself should be fine. Did that make sense?
Hope that helps.

The only difference in my command lines is if you want to move the help files around, so instead of using an xcopy in windows your would use a cp -r in unix/linux.
I guess im ok, 1 more battery of tests and I guess it's time to submit and see what happens
Thanks for advice as always Mark!

My $0.02 are to simply ommit things that can go wrong and are not absolutely neccessary

I just assume they are capeable to move files around on their OS so I don't mention that at all.
