Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-4561) Help in ij should fit in 80 columns terminal

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4561?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12844606#action_12844606

Sylvain Leroux commented on DERBY-4561:

Hi Denis,

Thanks for volunteering to address this.

This issue should be very easy to fix indeed - but it will be great to familiarize yourself
with the (rather complicated) build and test system.

The wiki contains some useful informations for any new contributor:

Basically, you will first need to check-out the latest development trunk of derby and set-up
your environment. See http://wiki.apache.org/db-derby/BuildingDerby for the details.

Then, I advise you to build all the jars right now - and to run the regression test suites.
In order to be sure everything is OK before you start modifying your version.

By searching thought the wiki and the mailing list, you should find all he required informations.
But feel free to ask is something goes wrong!


Concerning this issue per se, help messages are stored in a property file named "toolsmessages.properties"
(This is for the english version; you will find localized versions in the same folder).

After you made the required changes, you will have to change the master file for the corresponding
test as well. I think this is a file named "ij.out".

Finally re-run the regression test suites in order to verify there is no error after your
changes. And attach your patch here.

- Sylvain

> In ij, some statements seem to assume 80 columns terminal to format their output (SHOW
> But not HELP.
> HELP should assume the same defaults in order to fit nicely in 80 columns terminal. An
other option would be to dynamically adjust the display to the real terminal width - but I
don't know if there is a portable way of doing this in Java.
