Class FixCrLfFilter

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    java.io.Closeable, java.lang.AutoCloseable, java.lang.Readable, ChainableReader, Parameterizable

    public final class FixCrLfFilter
    extends BaseParamFilterReader
    implements ChainableReader
    Converts text to local OS formatting conventions, as well as repair text damaged by misconfigured or misguided editors or file transfer programs.

    This filter can take the following arguments:

    • eof
    • eol
    • fixlast
    • javafiles
    • tab
    • tablength
    None of which are required.

    This version generalises the handling of EOL characters, and allows for CR-only line endings (the standard on Mac systems prior to OS X). Tab handling has also been generalised to accommodate any tabwidth from 2 to 80, inclusive. Importantly, it can leave untouched any literal TAB characters embedded within Java string or character constants.

    Caution: run with care on carefully formatted files. This may sound obvious, but if you don't specify asis, presume that your files are going to be modified. If "tabs" is "add" or "remove", whitespace characters may be added or removed as necessary. Similarly, for EOLs, eol="asis" actually means convert to your native O/S EOL convention while eol="crlf" or cr="add" can result in CR characters being removed in one special case accommodated, i.e., CRCRLF is regarded as a single EOL to handle cases where other programs have converted CRLF into CRCRLF.

    Example:

     <<fixcrlf tab="add" eol="crlf" eof="asis"/>
     
    Or:
     <filterreader classname="org.apache.tools.ant.filters.FixCrLfFilter">
       <param eol="crlf" tab="asis"/>
      </filterreader>

      • chain

        public java.io.Reader chain​(java.io.Reader rdr)
        Create a new FixCrLfFilter using the passed in Reader for instantiation.
        Specified by:
        chain in interface ChainableReader
        Parameters:
        rdr - A Reader object providing the underlying stream. Must not be null.
        Returns:
        a new filter based on this configuration, but filtering the specified reader.
      • getEof

        public FixCrLfFilter.AddAsisRemove getEof()
        Get how DOS EOF (control-z) characters are being handled.
        Returns:
        values:
        • add: ensure that there is an eof at the end of the file
        • asis: leave eof characters alone
        • remove: remove any eof character found at the end
      • getEol

        public FixCrLfFilter.CrLf getEol()
        Get how EndOfLine characters are being handled.
        Returns:
        values:
        • asis: convert line endings to your O/S convention
        • cr: convert line endings to CR
        • lf: convert line endings to LF
        • crlf: convert line endings to CRLF
      • getFixlast

        public boolean getFixlast()
        Get whether a missing EOL be added to the final line of the stream.
        Returns:
        true if a filtered file will always end with an EOL
      • getJavafiles

        public boolean getJavafiles()
        Get whether the stream is to be treated as though it contains Java source.

        This attribute is only used in association with the "tab" attribute. Tabs found in Java literals are protected from changes by this filter.

        Returns:
        true if whitespace in Java character and string literals is ignored.
      • getTab

        public FixCrLfFilter.AddAsisRemove getTab()
        Return how tab characters are being handled.
        Returns:
        values:
        • add: convert sequences of spaces which span a tab stop to tabs
        • asis: leave tab and space characters alone
        • remove: convert tabs to spaces
      • getTablength

        public int getTablength()
        Get the tab length to use.
        Returns:
        the length of tab in spaces
      • read

        public int read()
                 throws java.io.IOException
        Return the next character in the filtered stream.
        Overrides:
        read in class java.io.FilterReader
        Returns:
        the next character in the resulting stream, or -1 if the end of the resulting stream has been reached.
        Throws:
        java.io.IOException - if the underlying stream throws an IOException during reading.
