GNU error format should not quote the filename
Last modified: 2013-07-12 05:24:39 CEST
The sample here:
as well as the html5check.py script both quote the filename, but that isn't proper GNU error message format, as described here:
I was trying to use the html5check.py script as my Emacs compile command, and needed to make following modification to make it work properly:
for line in response:
The file name is quoted, because it can be a full URI, and full URIs contain a colon.
A user of Validator.nu raised the issue with GNU and the response from the GNU project was that they suggested using C string-like quoting, so I implemented quoting.
I'll ping the contact at GNU.
Been a long time and no plans to change this behavior. But if you still want it changed, please re-open.
