Summary0015813: add_custom_command(COMMENT) force a newline in ninja printout
DescriptionUnder normal circumstances (built-in targets and build commands, for instance), ninja puts out to a terminal a line of the form:

[n/M] <message>

Which is overwritten unless there is output from the command. In the case of a COMMENT message such as COMMENT "Doing important stuff" to an add_custom_command, however, a newline at the end of the message is printed rather than having the next progress message overwrite it.
Steps To ReproduceAdd a custom command whose COMMAND produces no output. Attach it to a target with the ALL option activated and then run CMake with the Ninja generator. Activate ninja and watch the progress print behavior. Then, add a COMMENT to the custom command definition and observe the behavior when ninja is rerun.
Additional InformationThis behavior was observed with ninja 1.6.0.

This behavior has not been tested with add_custom_target(COMMENT ...).
TagsNo tags attached.
