Subject [jira] Created: (VELOCITY-623) Modify escape behavior in strict mode
Date Fri, 10 Oct 2008 02:14:44 GMT
Modify escape behavior in strict mode

                 Key: VELOCITY-623
             Project: Velocity
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Engine
    Affects Versions: 1.6
            Reporter: Byron Foster
         Attachments: StrictEscapeWithProperty.patch

provides another property 'runtime.references.strict.escape' that when true modifies the behavior
of escaping a reference when in strict mode, see discussion VELOCITY-618.  The behavior is
a as follows:

$abc = <exception>    -  If $abc is not defined
\$abc = $abc 
\\$abc = <exception>  - If $abc is  not defined
\\\$abc = \$abc

The backslash in front of a reference always prevents that reference from being evaluated,
and the backslash is removed. This is true wether a reference is in the context or not.
