Re: [augeas-devel] Example matched by two lenses: <nothing>



Hi again,

I probably just found the answer myself:

augtool> errors
Error in /tmp/gridmapfile (put_failed)
  Value '/C=DE/OU=KIT/CN=HAL9000 (Robot)' does not match regexp /[^" \t\n]+/ in store lens
  Lens: /usr/share/augeas/lenses/dist/gridmapfile.aug:17.15-.33:

Augeas tried to put with the wrong lens, but I don't understand why this happens. After all, the configuration file was successfully parsed with a different lens (the one in line 18). Though the counter to this problem seems easy: I swapped the application of lenses from line 17 and 18, now the lens for line 18 is matched first. So when Augeas puts the tree to file, it will always enclose the values from the tree in quotation marks, which is sometimes optional.

Sorry for the noise, but writing my thought to the mailling list did help me solve the problem on my own. Possibly other people will find the answer to the same question with Google in the future. :-)

Best regards,
Xavier.
