I was trying to link each of my projects' javadocs with Java6 and each of its dependent project javadocs. Here is a simple example of what I was trying to do:

options.links 'file:/C:/dev/myProject/modules/java/docs/api/', 'file:/C:/dev/myProject/modules/common/build/docs/javadoc/'

This resulted in the following error:

javadoc: warning - Error fetching URL: File:/C:/dev/myProject/modules/java/docs/api/;file:/C:/dev/myProject/modules/common/build/docs/javadoc/

The problem was caused by the links option using a "stringsOption" type, which concatenates all the specified options together into one string separated by semi-colons. I fixed this by adding a "multilineStringsOption" type, which causes each option to be passed to the javadoc command via a separate line. These changes are included in the patch.
