unexpand chokes on empty lines
Last modified: 2016-02-16 22:49:40 EST
Description of problem:
unexpand doesn't like when there are empty lines in a file and finishes abruptly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. echo >test.txt
2. unexpand test.txt
unexpand: input line is too long
it should successfully process all lines.
As a temporary workaround, please try to use C locales. With LC_ALL=C unexpand it should not happen. I assume this is caused by recent changes in downstream implementation of i18n patch. Can you confirm?
Unfortunately it didn't help. Nothing changed.
