Subject Re: FileUtils.getStringFromFile issue when using XML
Date Tue, 03 May 2011 13:18:47 GMT
you are right. The normalizeCRLF() method should not add an extra
space at the begining. We can fix this particular issue.

But there is one open question, as the exact purpose (use case) of
this method is not clear to me. Why do we need this normalization
method that just removes all the CRs and LFs and replace each
space/tab character with a single space and this method is
automatically called in FileUtils.getStringFromFile()?

Does someone else wants to have other normalization options such as
doing the standard xml white space "ignore" handling or the
end-of-line handling (i.e., replacing each CRLF pair to a single LF)?
