Subject [jira] [Commented] (IO-464) Reader to support continuation lines
Date Mon, 08 Dec 2014 23:55:12 GMT


Sebb commented on IO-464:

Looks like IMF (Internet Message Format) uses a similar continuation scheme, except tabs and
other white-space are allowed [1] for the first character on the new line.
The allowable continuation characters should be specifiable via parameters.

MIME Quoted-printable uses an "=" sign at the end of the line to represent a soft line break.
It might be worth supporting this as well.

> The iCal format requires long lines to be wrapped.
> This is indicated by starting the next line with a single space
> Java manifest files use the same syntax
> There are probably other instances of this syntax.
> This syntax is trivial to generate, but not as easy to read, as there is only indication
of the continuation is on the next line. This means that it is necessary to use look-ahead
to determine if the current line has a continuation.
> It would be useful to provide a Reader to support this.
