Subject [jira] Created: (MNG-2399) file size check on pom.xml (or thing specified by --file opt) should only apply to regular files (patch attached)

file size check on pom.xml (or thing specified by --file opt) should only apply to regular
files (patch attached)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

         Key: MNG-2399
         URL: http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MNG-2399
     Project: Maven 2
        Type: Bug

  Components: General, Command Line  
    Versions: 2.0.4    
    Reporter: Alan D. Salewski
    Priority: Minor
 Attachments: mvn-get-plugin

The file size check in {{maven-core/.../org/apache/maven/DefaultMaven.java}} is applied too
aggressively. In particular, it should only be applied to regular files; when reading from
a unix named pipe (probably other platform-specific devices, too) we may not be able to determine
the file size prior to reading the data.

The real-world motiviation from this is the attached '{{mvn-get-plugin}}' {{bash}} script,
which wants to pipe a dummy {{pom.xml}} file to {{mvn}} on {{stdin}} (by specifying {{/dev/stdin}}
as the argument to the {{mvn}} {{\-\-file}} command line option).

Once I submit this issue and have the issue number, I'll attach two patches, one against the
maven svn trunk, and one against the {{maven-2.0.4}} tag.
