When trying to execute the Software build program waf ( with the command python waf-1.7.16 --version, this unzip a folder in the current directory while reporting the version of the program on the standard input. Waf is distributed as a single file with unix end-of-lines. Executing the program with python 2.7 to 3.3 does not cause any problem, but executing with python-3.4.0 make the execution stop.

I patched waf to solve the problem which is purely related to unix/dos end-of-lines. The behaviour of python-3.4.0 seems to have change regarding these EOL characters compared to the previous releases. Is that intentional?

Kind regards

Can you describe what command you ran and what you saw at the "executing with python-3.4.0 make the execution stop" step?
