Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-814) javacc on Win32 (cygwin) creates wrong line endings - fix them with 'ant replace'
Date Mon, 26 Feb 2007 22:59:05 GMT


Doron Cohen commented on LUCENE-814:

Hoss is right about both:

1) "ant fixcrlf" is much simpler to use,and does the job. I wish I have discovered that task
before fighting with the replace tasks. 

2) QueryParser.jj has svn:eol-style native and hence when extracted under DOS, has Windows
eols. There, "ant javacc" which runs as a Win app, would create Windows eols, all dandy. But
if Cygwin is used for checkout, jj has Unix eols, however here "ant javacc" still runs as
Win app, and the result file is a mix of eol styles. 

I think there is no fixed (non native) setting for jj that would sattisfy all situations.
Also, I think this is why Eclipse svn plugin (subclipse) sometimes shows a file as entirely
modified (comparing to repository head) - may be related to checkout with cygwin while Eclipse
runs as Win app.

So I see three options:
1 - leave as is (do not fix)
2 - add target to build.xml to allow easily fixing eol (what one can do with sed)
3 - fix eol-style to be the same as that of the jj file (worth the effort?)

> "ant javacc" in Windows/Cygwin generates files with wrong line endings (\r  or \r\n instead
of *Nix's \n). 
> I managed to get rid of those using    perl -p -e 's/(\r\n|\n|\r)/\n/g'
> Some useful info on line ending issues is in
> After wasting some time to get rid of those, I modified javacc-QueryParser build.xml
task to take care of that.
> So now QueryParser files created with "ant javacc" are fixed (if required) to have \n
as line ends.
> Should probably do that also for the other javacc targets: javacc-HTMLParser and javacc-StandardAnalyzer(?)
