      Description

      I discovered a bug in Commons CLI while using it through Groovy's CliBuilder. See the following issue:

      http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/GROOVY-4313?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

      Copied:
      The following code:

      def cli = new CliBuilder(footer: "line1:\n line2:\n")
      cli.usage()

      Produces the following output:

      line1
      line2

      Note that there are no whitespaces before "line2". Replacing them with "\t" doesn't solve the problem either.

        Thank you for the report Uri. It's now fixed on the trunk and will be part of the 1.3 release.
