Subject ANT: deltree not quite right on NT - case sensitivity problem
Date Thu, 27 Jan 2000 11:11:55 GMT
When I try

  <target name="clean">
    <deltree dir="c:/temp"/>
  </target>

nothing ever gets deleted.

It turns out that 
	dir.getCanonicalPath() => C:/TEMP
	dir.getAbsolutePath()) => C:/temp

Setting dir="c:/TEMP" overcomes this.  

Using equalsIgnoreCase could potentially cause even more problems, so
might I suggest a warning if the absolute path & canonical path don't
match.
