Subject [PATCH] Javadoc not properly quoting packages in groups.
Date Wed, 16 May 2001 18:18:57 GMT
First, this is not the patch related to my previous problems.  But a problem
that I've found, non-the-less.  ;-)

As per the specification for the "-group" parameter for the javadoc command
(found at
	NOTE: If using an asterisk in a pattern or pattern list, the pattern
list must be inside quotes, such as "java.lang*:java.util" 

Currently, Ant doesn't do this.  Have a look at the results of performing a
"build dist" of the current CVS tree:

Javadoc args: javadoc ... -group "Ant Core"* ...

The following patch simply quotes the pattern list, regardless of whether or
not it contains an asterisk.
