|[eclipse-pmc] Backport request: Bug 496845 - Unable to open a file from command line with specific line number|
In 4.6 we added functionality to allow specifying a line and column number to '--openFile'. From the discussion on the original bug (Bug #305336), there were three standards to support:
path+3 (line 3)
path:3 (line 3)
path:3:4 (line 3 + column 4)
path+3:4 (line 3 + column 4)
So the column was always specified with a colon. It turns out GTK treats the colon as a special character, so that it is impossible to specify a column.
For 496845 I modified the regex to allow specifying the column using a '+'. The actual patch for 4.7 did some refactoring and added some tests. For 4.6.1 I'd like to just change the regex used:
The risk is minimal.
