Feedback on JSPwikiToTWikiAddOn

-- NilsBoysen - 23 Aug 2003

Nils, thanks for supporting the TWiki communiy smile

FYI, I renamed the Add-On from *Twiki* to *TWiki*.

checked .zip into CVS

Bah. Just uploaded an improved version but it appended .txt on the end for no good reason.


  • use warnings;
  • Doesn't hardcode parameters - takes them from ARGV, in this order:
    • input directory of original JSPWiki files
    • directory of TWiki root (containing data/ and pub/)
    • name for new TWiki web
  • Gives more helpful errors on failure
  • Fixes bug with double slashes in pathnames
  • Removes invocation of unix2dos which I didn't see the point of, and which just made things a lot slower.

May have more tweaks to come. Thanks a lot for your work!

Hmm, I'm beginning to see why unix2dos was included - I'm now seeing missing newlines after bits of = data, although admittedly I haven't tested whether reincluding =unix2dos fixes this. Even if it does, I don't think unix2dos is the right way of fixing it; the code should just insert newlines in the right places.

I added a SHORTDESCRIPTION to the "Add-On Info" section so that this add-on is represented properly in the AddOnPackage topic and query topics. Please feel free to take this into the next release.
