XACTstep wir2xnf 5.2.1 may fail with WIR files created by Powerview 6.1

Description

Keywords: Powerview 6.1, wir2xnf 5.2.1, line continuation character, +

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
Viewlogic has made a change in the WIR file format with Powerview 6.1. Long
lines can be truncated into multiple lines by the use of a continuation
character. When WIR2XNF 5.x attempts to translate this file, it complains
that it does not understand the continuation character. The character is a "+".

Solution

In your viewdraw.ini file for this project, make sure the following line does
not exist:

|5.0 WIR_CONT_CHAR 1

If this is removed, the WIR files will not have the continuation character and
WIR2XNF will proceed as expected.
