Ticket #118 (closed defect: fixed)
parsing of multiple URLs (greedy matching?)
|Reported by:||kowey||Owned by:|
This bug is actually against Cabal/hackage (see http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/hackage/ticket/569), but I'm cross-posting here in case it's still relevant to haddock. Hopefully this is just a matter of marking it already closed.
It appears that strings with more than one URL in them are parsed incorrectly. For example,
See <http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/API> and <http://haskell.forkio.com/>
gets treated as though there was only one URL. I get the impression that there's some kind of greedy matching going on, like a "<.*>" in regexp terms.
This manifests as funny looking output on hackage, eg. http://hackage.haskell.org/package/mediawiki
