+Bug#: 75245
+Product: Mono: Compilers
+Version: 1.1
+OS Details: Ubuntu Hoary x86
+Status: NEW   
+Priority: Wishlist
+Component: C#

+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: Newline in character literal should trigger CS1010 error
+Description of Problem:
+Newlines are forbidden in single-quoted character literals according to the
+spec (ECMA-344, but mcs accepts this construct.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. char x='
+2. Save source file in Unix line-ending format.
+2. mcs foo.cs
+Actual Results:
+MCS compiles this without complaint.
+Expected Results:
+This should probably trigger a CS1010 'Newline in constant' error, as
+csc.exe in .NET 1.1 does.
+How often does this happen? 
+Every time.
+Additional Information:
+If the file is saved in DOS format, this will (also) trigger a CS1012 for
+having too many characters on both csc and mcs.
+Tested with Mono compiled from SVN a couple weeks ago on Linux, and Mono
+1.1.7 on Windows XP.
