VC2012 project exporter minor issue - self closing tag


After resaving a project, VS2012 puts a blank into the self-closing tag

it seems this also XML Standard, you might need to change the xml-generator

<ClCompile Include="..\..\Source\PluginEditor.cpp"/>

<ClCompile Include="..\..\Source\PluginEditor.cpp" />


It's probably a good thing to add the space for readability, but according to this StackOverflow post, the space before slash is a bit of an old thing to do.


ah okay, but its also useful because of version control (svn/git)


Yeah, it would definitely reduce the diffs!


Could be done with a replace ("/>", " />") operation after the XML is generated, I guess.. I don't think I'd want to burden the XML parser with generating that.
