Subject: Whitespace-only line is concatenated with the whitespaces in the beginning of the next line
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 809b
Please take a look on these three cases: one: "\n foo". it will translate to two tokens: whitespace "\n " and word "foo". two: "\n \nfoo". now we will have three tokens: whitespace "\n", whitespace " \n" and word "foo". three: "foo\n foo", will translate to: word "foo", whitespace "\n", whitespace " ", word "foo". So I think that the first case is a bug, and the whitespace should be splitted to newline and the rest. For doing this, you should add in the following line: (in pseudo diff) sub __TOKENIZER__on_line_start { my $t = $_[1]; my $line = $t->{line}; # Can we classify the entire line in one go if ( $line =~ /^\s*$/ ) { # A whitespace line $t->_new_token( 'Whitespace', $line ); + $t->_finalize_token; return 0; Thanks, Shmuel.
