Subject Re: Jar task : Manifest File ends with Windows ending '\r'.
Date Wed, 30 Aug 2006 18:39:38 GMT
Hello Matt,

I am -1 to change the way ant stores manifests. At least if you want to change something,
do not change the default behavior. Adding an attribute to choose the eol style of the manifest
is OK, as long as the default behavior does not change.

If you change the default behavior, Windows users of jars built under Unix will complain.
\n without \r under Windows is displayed in notepad as a square.



Regards,

Antoine
