Subject [jira] [Created] (CSV-98) Line number counting is confusing
Date Tue, 07 May 2013 15:11:19 GMT
Sebb created CSV-98:
-----------------------

             Summary: Line number counting is confusing
                 Key: CSV-98
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CSV-98
             Project: Commons CSV
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Sebb


The original code counts EOLs only (CR/LF/CRLF), starting from 0.

Thus the line number stays as 0 until the EOL of the first line is seen.

This is confusing: if a parsing error is detected before EOL is reached on the first line
it will be reported as line 0, whereas if the error is detected after EOL is detected but
before any other characters are read it will be reported as line 1. However as far as the
user is concerned in both cases the syntax error is in line 1.

The current line number should start at 0 (when nothing has been processed) and be returned
as line 1 from the 1st character read up until the end of the first line.
