Issue/Introduction

When Wily is patched via the hotfix, the lines that are added into certain files contain the Windows EOL/CR.

 

This is only cosmetic unit I need to diff on the file and  it spits out every single line as different. Only way to fix this is to manually convert the file from DOS to Unix.

 

 

Environment

Release : 10.7.0 on Linux

Component : Introscope

Resolution

This is only cosmetic and does not interfere with the reading of the files.  However, if you need to diff on the file, it will display every single line as different.  You can work around this by manually converting the file from DOS to Unix using the dos2unix Linux command.

Engineering has created a user story to deal with the CR/LF in the service pack/hotfix upgrades.
