In #6021 we have refactored the script. Unfortunately it broke all builds on Windows, since it assumes Windows style line endings (\r\n) in docstring (__doc__), when in reality there are only '\n' symbols.


Windows 10, FCU. Python 2.7.13

How to reproduce

  1. Initiate any build process. For example build -t edge or devenv -t chrome.

Observed behaviour

Build fails with an error.

Expected behaviour

Build should succeed.

I haven't been able to test this as eventually fails because it attempts to run bash at some point (for linting I think). Should I just be able to build using the normal windows command line or should I be using Cygwin/Subsystem for Windows/Other?

As far as I'm concerned, you can skip testing this part. Whether building the extension succeeds is irrelevant for users, and for the upcoming release. Generally, when testing buildtools changes, its mostly relevant that they don't have any (unexpected) effect on the generated builds.

Just to note: I still could not build on plain Windows. However building inside Linux Subsystem for Windows 10 works fine.
