#10 closed defect (fixed)

Comments in cfg files cannot be properly handled for string parameters

Reported by: li@… Owned by: davidf
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: HM Version:
Keywords: Cc: fbossen, ksuehring, davidf, jct-vc@…


The comments in cfg files cannot be removed from the value strings. Normally, it doesn't matter. But for string parameters like "InputFile", the comment after the parameter will be treated as a part of the parameter. A possible solution may be the following revision in bool TAppOption::setValue( const char *option , char *value )

for( int i = 0 ; i < option_counter ; i++ ){

if( strcmp( options[i], option ) == 0 ){

lines for bug fixing
char * pComment = strchr( value , comment );
if( pComment != NULL )

*pComment = 0;

value = chomp( value );
lines for bug fixing

values[ optionindex[i] ] = (char*) malloc((strlen(value)+1)*sizeof(char));
strcpy( values[ optionindex[i] ], value );

return true;

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from assigned to closed

This has been resolved in r61, with unified config and command line handling.
The following examples will all give the same result ("some string"):

  • "Foo: some string"
  • "Foo: some string #comment"
  • "Foo:some string"
  • "Foo: some string "

Hash (#) characters must appear after whitespace for them to be treated as marking the start of a comment.
Eg, "Foo: some string#comment" evaluates to "some string#comment".
