Subject RE: Controling the environment for exec tasks
Date Mon, 17 Jul 2000 12:11:43 GMT
I have a version of antRun.bat that will handle any number of arguments by
shifting. There was, however, a discussion in February about all this and I
dimly recall there were some issues about how this shifting would work. I
have tested my version on Win98 with reasonable results. Can anyone remember
the issues?
