Subject Handling of binary files
Date Wed, 22 Aug 2012 08:01:26 GMT

I am working with the Apache OpenOffice (Incubating) project.  We are 
using Rat to find potential license problems.

Rat is a very helpful tool.  Thank you very much for creating and 
maintaining it.

I am currently working on better integrating Rat into our build process 
and I have a question regarding the handling of binary files.  Rat is 
started from an Ant script, so file exclusion is handled by Ant.  Some 
of our files are binary, eg OpenOffice text documents that are used for 
testing, zip files, jar files, images.  If such a binary is reported by 
Rat then its content (well, a part of it) is written to the output xml 
file.  This causes an error in the xslt transformation that we use to 
transform the output xml to html.

Now my question.  Is there a way mark certain files as binary so that 
they are still reported but without including their content?
