Contrary to docs, not seeing warnings that were logged in multi-pkg project #2997

The docs state:

By default, when building multiple target packages, the output from these will end up in a log file instead of on the console unless it contains errors or warnings

Not the case at my end with 1.3.2 (latest I reckon, Win64 build), so I'd have to dump-logs to see those warnings.. errors do get properly emitted as described above however. Did GHC's output format for warnings change in 8.0.2 or something? 😁

Also possible the different line endings on Windows are interfering with warning detection.

I'm also seeing this (or, rather, not seeing them) on Linux with GHC 8.2.1.

I can confirm that on GHC 8.2.x it shows me warnings only with

dump-logs: all

but in fact it should work out of the box because the defaults is

dump-logs: warning

It seems like the problem is the colored output. GHC 8.0 does not use any ANSI escapes, but GHC 8.2 does.

For example:

$ cat test.hs
main = putStrLn "Test"
$ ghc-8.0.2 -Wall test.hs 2>&1 | tee output
$ cat -v output
[1 of 1] Compiling Main             ( test.hs, test.o )

test.hs:1:1: warning: [-Wmissing-signatures]
    Top-level binding with no type signature: main :: IO ()
Linking test ...
$ ghc-8.2.2 -Wall -fdiagnostics-color=always  test.hs > output 2>&1 
$ cat -v output
[1 of 1] Compiling Main             ( test.hs, test.o )

^[[;1mtest.hs:1:1: ^[[;1m^[[35mwarning:^[[0m^[[0m^[[;1m [^[[;1m^[[35m-Wmissing-signatures^[[0m^[[0m^[[;1m]^[[0m^[[0m^[[;1m

^[[;1m^[[34m  |^[[0m^[[0m^[[;1m^[[35m ^^^^^[[0m^[[0m
^[[0m^[[0m^[[0mLinking test ...

The flag -fdiagnostics-color=always is passed by stack to GHC if GHC version is > 8.2.1 (see shouldForceColorFlag).

And this change confuses this function:

    isWarning :: Text -> Bool
    isWarning t = ": Warning:" `T.isSuffixOf` t -- prior to GHC 8
               || ": warning:" `T.isInfixOf` t -- GHC 8 is slightly different

The easiest fix is to get rid of the ": " prefix (replace ": warning-word:" with "warning-word:"). Or just sanitize the string with another filter to remove escapes.

Any thoughts?
