Subject [Patch] UNIX link support
Date Wed, 18 Apr 2001 17:11:52 GMT
Hi All,

	Attached is a simple link task which allows you to create unix
	links from ant build files. It supports both hard and symbolic links.

	I'm definitely an ant beginner - so please feel free to point out any
	mistakes. I want to learn the right way to do things.

	Couple of questions - how do we handle platform specific tasks like
	this ? (ie. is it acceptable for general consumption ?, core or
	optional, or neither ?).

	I'm intending to add support for target directories as well.
	
		ie. ln TARGET-0...[TARGET-N] DIRECTORY
	
	and the option of removing existing destination files, if people would
	find that useful ?

	Any implementation ideas for non UNIX platforms ??

	Cheers,

	Marcus
