    Configuration Object White Space Removal

    Edwin Lindeman

      Here is a question that I've been meaning to ask for a while but kept forgetting to.

       

      When you deploy a configuration file to say modify an entry the result of the file removes empty lines.  Example if a configuration file looks like this name space value.

      If i make a change to the file for example to change first name the file gets modified and removes empty lines to look like the below.

       

      #comments name below

      name  perry

      software  bladelogic

      #more and more comments

      last_name lindeman

       

       

       

      how can I keep the empty lines and make the file as original as possible without having to write a script or is this by design?

       

      Thank you
