Cross-platform application development is a rich and interesting field, and generally, your application will be more robust if you test it on several different platforms. This chapter discussed the possibility of targeting multiple platforms, but you might work on a team that also develops on multiple platforms; in this case, you'll probably want to verify that your version-control systems and development tools are configured properly. The issues involved are generally similar to those described above?in particular, you might need to consider file encodings. To better understand this topic, consider reading Crossing Platforms: A Macintosh/Windows Phrasebook (A Dictionary for Strangers in a Strange Land), by Adam Engst and David Pogue (O'Reilly).
