Description

This patch is in reply to: http://redmine.audacious-media-player.org/boards/1/topics/662

The m3u files at slayradio.org contain extra empty lines, which break Audacious' m3u parser. The parser exits at the first empty line it encounters. As a work-around, a patch like attached works, since it skips empty lines, which should be harmless anyway. The M3U specs don't mention those extra lines, however.

What do you think?

Thanks for the patch. It was enough to change the "break" statement to a "goto NEXT" without changing split_line():

Yes, that's what the bottom half of the patch did.
Changing split_line only avoids that split_line is called for \0.
