Hi Guys,

I found a bug... I normally edit my files from SSH using nano. But when saving, nano keeps a empty line on the end of the file. I saved my news.txt and when I opened eoserv, the last news were repeated. Like:


"Welcome to Untitled Server!\n

Find this in handlers/welcome.cpp:

for (int i = 0; i < 9; ++i)


if (newsfh)


(void)std::fgets(newsbuf, 4096, newsfh);


Replace it with this:

for (int i = 0; i < 9; ++i)


if (newsfh)


if(std::fgets(newsbuf, 4096, newsfh) == 0)


newseof = true;



The problem is that its getting the string from there and placing it in newsbuf, but if it doesn't find anything, newsbuf doesn't change and is therefor used again in the same state as it's last change. Thats what made it copy.

Pretty sure this is caused by not having 9 lines of text in the file, rather than the addition of an empty line. Applying the fix above.

Updated Status to CONFIRMED

Guess I made that up, code is just derpy. New lines at the end of the file are ignored now, also lines shorter than 2 characters (including empty ones) are displayed in the EO client.

Fixed in r379.

Updated Status to CLOSED, FIXED
