    jar manifest grammar

      Hi,

       

      I am trying to write a grammar to parse java jar file manifests. I've written an extended object to extract the manifest, and cat it out.

       

      If a manifest file has a section like this:

       

      Name: java/util/

      Specification-Title: "Java Utility Classes"

      Specification-Version: "1.2"

      Specification-Vendor: "Sun Microsystems, Inc.".

      Implementation-Title: "java.util"

      Implementation-Version: "build57"

      Implementation-Vendor: "Sun Microsystems, Inc."

       

      Then I want Name to be the section head, and all following items to belong to it.

       

      I adapted the windows ini grammar, but it just refuses to parse.

       

      I have some sections without parents (especially the 1st two lines). Is this the reason why it wont parse?

       

      Mark.
