Subject [jira] [Commented] (KARAF-5382) Karaf shell session.readLine consumes backslashes
Date Tue, 19 Sep 2017 10:09:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KARAF-5382?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16171455#comment-16171455

Tom Quarendon commented on KARAF-5382:

Useful to be able to get the raw line. That's helpful. 

Not sure I understand the first half. From Session you don't have access to the reader directly,
all you have is "session.readLine". Hence me creating my own LineReader from the Terminal
I can get from Session (casting to jline.Terminal). Having got that, I either set my own completer,
or nothing at all, and don't set a highlighter.

If what you mean is could I try changing the Karaf shell source code of the Session class
to make that change, then I'm not sure how I'd go about doing that and running the result.

> I don't know what the intended use case is for session.readLine, but the behaviour w.r.t
backslashes is odd.
> I use is to prompt for a password from the user. So in an action, call session.readLine("prompt",
'*'). However, if the user's password contains a backslash, readLine doesn't return what the
user typed, which is mighty confusing.
