Description

Name: nt126004			Date: 01/24/2002


FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
java version "1.4.0-beta3"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.0-beta3-b84)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.0-beta3-b84, mixed mode)

FULL OPERATING SYSTEM VERSION :
SunOS aloysius 5.8 Generic_108528-05 sun4u sparc
SUNW,Ultra-5_10



A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
May be simple doc bug.  Dox suggest that -tag name:X
is acceptable (cf http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4/docs/tooldocs/solaris/javadoc.html#tag
).  However, -tag blahtag:X actually gets me:

javadoc: Error - blahtag:X is an invalid argument to the
-tag option...


This bug can be reproduced always.

CUSTOMER WORKAROUND :
Just make sure to provide a dummy taghead:
-tag blahtag:X:Quack

WORK AROUND As mentioned by the submitter, the workaround is to include any tag heading as the third term -- it will be ignored (not printed in the output) but will allow the option to suppress error messages. For example, "Quack": -tag blahtag:X:Quack ###@###.### 2002-10-17
2002-10-17

EVALUATION This option: -tag beaninfo:X produces this error: javadoc: Error - beaninfo:X is an invalid argument to the -tag option... ###@###.### 2002-03-25 I've added the -tag beaninfo:X tag to the J2SE hopper makefile, so this bug needs to be fixed for hopper ###@###.### 2002-03-25 I made a counting error when parsing -tag arguments in the following format: -tag <tagName>:X I used the string tokenizer "new StringTokenizer(args[1], ":", true)" and thought that the argument was 2 tokens. It is actually 3 tokens because the ":" is not thrown away. This bug fix is pending review. ###@###.### 2002-07-08
