Error description

  • The IBM Rational ClearCase command 'cleartool lsstream -ancestor
    -in <PROJECT SELECTOR>' incorrectly cascades the output in a
    manner such as the following:
    
    -----
    m:\>cleartool lsstream -ancestor -in FirstProject@\ucmPVOB
    RootFolder         folder   'Root folder'
      FirstProject         project
        *FP_Integration        stream
          RootFolder        folder   'Root folder'
     FirstProject        project
       *FP_Integration      stream
         FP_Development     stream
    -----
    
    This can become unintelligible with deeply nested projects.  The
    formatting is also inconsistent with similar ClearCase commands
    such as 'cleartool lsstream -ancestor -invob <VOB>' which
    left-justifies each 'RootFolder' node as follows:
    
    -----
    m:\>cleartool lsstream -ancestor -invob \ucmPVOB
    RootFolder         folder   'Root folder'
      FirstProject         project
        *FP_Integration        stream
    RootFolder         folder   'Root folder'
      FirstProject         project
        *FP_Integration        stream
          FP_Development        stream
    -----
    
    Steps to reproduce the issue:
    
    1) Create a ClearCase UCM project consisting of at least one
    integration stream and two child streams.
    
    2) Run 'cleartool lsstream -ancestor -in <PROJECT SELECTOR>.
    
    
    WORKAROUND:
    
    Consider using a small script to re-parse the data into a more
    readable format.
    
    One example of a small perl script on a Windows platform that
    could be utilized as a starting point can be seen below.
    
    EXAMPLE ancInProj.pl script (call via 'perl ancInProj.pl
    projectName@\pvob'):
    -----
    foreach(`cleartool lsstream -anc -in $ARGV[0]`) {
     $padding = ($_ =~ m/(\s*)RootFolder/) ? $1 : $padding;
     $_ =~ s/^$padding//;
     print $_;
    }
    -----
