Subject [jira] [Created] (IO-464) Reader to support continuation lines
Date Mon, 08 Dec 2014 00:13:12 GMT
Sebb created IO-464:
-----------------------

             Summary: Reader to support continuation lines
                 Key: IO-464
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IO-464
             Project: Commons IO
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Sebb


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.
