No. It did not make it in to 14.0 or 14.10.
We will look into this as a post-14.10 activity.
Will it make in 15.0?
It creates so much overhead if you have to deal with it in preprosessing. These social network sources are full of this as it all about free text fields...
For this scenario of loading \n embedded in data fields, is that possible with any other operators in TPT at all ?
The DataConnector is the only operator that processes data from flat files and it does not currently support newlines embedded in data.
(We are actually working on that feature now as part of our 16.0 release, and will eventually roll that feature back to prior releases, but no timetable yet.)
Is this feature any closer to being implemented yet?
We are looking at loading some files which contain email text as a field. We could quote the field using some obscure unicode character, but if tpt still thinks the end of line is an end of record then it isn't going to work. Alternatively if we had AppendDelimiter = 'Y' set then TPT could only end the record if it had the delimiter character immediately before the end of line.
I think we may be able to load the data if we change it so that the records have a windows format CR-LF end of line marker, and the email fields have just unix format LF for the new line. This will take some preprocessing of the file in unix, which is not ideal but should work. I think we would need to make sure that the first row is a header record which didn't have the unix LF end of line marker in it.
