0D0A line ends in Documentation field of UML Editor [message #627389] Wed, 11 February 2009 13:58

I am using RSA, and the Documentation field of the UML Editor
of RSA uses 0x0D0A sequences as line ends in certain cases, and the 0x0D
character in that sequence causes an issue for us.

In the ECUTE plugin to RSA, we are importing and exporting UML models
from and to the text based CIM MOF format defined by DMTF, where 0x0D
and 0x0A characters in CIM MOF strings (to which we map the
Documentation field) are represented as "\r" and "\n" escape sequences,

However, the convention in CIM MOF is that line breaks in strings are
represented as a single "\n", without a preceding "\r".

So the cases in which the field editor uses 0x0D characters as part of
the line end, prevents us from following this CIM MOF convention, i.e.
these cases produce "\r\n" as line end sequence in any exported CIM MOF

The field editor is able to deal with text from imported CIM MOF that
used just "\n" line ends, and produces text that has just 0x0A
characters as line ends, but as soon as the text is modified using the
field editor, that is changed back to 0x0D0A sequences again.

Before we head off to modify our CIM MOF exporter to fold 0x0D0A
sequences in the text into a single "\n" escape in the CIM MOF, I'd like
to understand the following:

1. Is there any setting by which we can get the Documentation field to
get to use just 0x0A characters as line ends ? (I assume no?)

2. Which other fields in the UML Editor have the same behavior as the
Documentation field w.r.t. line end characters ? (I assume all?)
