Subject Re: Dropping proton-dump; Moving to newer minimum CMake version
Date Wed, 13 Apr 2016 17:52:33 GMT
A multi-frame issues showed up at https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DISPATCH-263 and I
think proton-dump was useful in figuring it out. 

Wireshark marked dozens of frames with decode errors. proton-dump[1] came to the rescue was
able to grind through the packets without complaining. Problem analysis could immediately
move beyond figuring out what's wrong with the data stream because it was fine.

I don't need to add proton-dump back into the source tree but I have it built and ready for
the occasional need.


[1] proton-dump was opening the dump files in text mode and causing a confusing truncation
error. If you plan to use proton-dump you should apply this:

diff --git a/proton-c/src/proton-dump.c b/proton-c/src/proton-dump.c
index 1ce577d..f0718ac 100644
--- a/proton-c/src/proton-dump.c
+++ b/proton-c/src/proton-dump.c
@@ -39,7 +39,7 @@ void fatal_error(const char *msg, const char *arg, int err)

-  FILE *in = fopen(file, "r");
+  FILE *in = fopen(file, "rb");
   if (!in) fatal_error("proton-dump: dump: opening %s", file, errno);

   pn_buffer_t *buf = pn_buffer(1024);
