    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Closed
    • Priority: Major
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: 1.5, 1.6
    • Fix Version/s: 1.10
    • Environment:

      I tested on Windows 7.

      Description

      Writing a unit test I discovered that the example Wikipedia uses for quoted-printable data does not decode but instead throws an exception.
      Their example is here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quoted-printable#Example

      test:

      String qpdata = "If you believe that truth=3Dbeauty, then surely=20=\r\n" +
      "mathematics is the most beautiful branch of philosophy.";

      String expected = "If you believe that truth=beauty, then surely " +
      "mathematics is the most beautiful branch of philosophy.";

      assertEquals( expected, new QuotedPrintableCodec().decode(qpdata) );

      I suppose I could fix if you like but currently I'm not a registered developer.
