PUP-927: any workaround?

I am facing this issue:

Is there a known way of working around it? For example, I am doing the following (on Windows):

file { 'C:\sql2014install.ini': content => template('mssql2014/config.ini.erb'), }

The mssql2014/config.ini.erb file has CRLF line endings. The output C:\sql2014install.ini always has LF line endings and therefore the MSSQL 2014 install does not see the line endings.

Does anyone know a workaround? Should I do a simple file copy instead?

You can use the regsubst function to fix the newlines after processing the template.

The following example should do the trick, and it shouldn't break your code once Puppet releases a fix for this problem, because it correctly checks for '\r\n' before substitution.

class test {
  file { 'C:/vagrant/test.txt':
    ensure => 'file',
    content => regsubst(template('test/test.txt.erb'), '(?<!\r)\n', "\r\n", 'G')

Thank you. I did not know you could use regsubst directly inside a template. I previously used it in a separate ruby file.

No problem. In this case, it's actually a Puppet function that can be used inside a Puppet manifest. This works because the bug your encountering is in the ERB rendering code. If you used it in your template, you'd encounter the original bug again. :)
