! Version: 1.3
! Platform: PC
! OS/Version: 
! Status: NEW

! Summary: bin\lcp.bat prepends Ant libraries to user's path
! 
  On DOS (not Linux or cygwin), ant.bat calls lcp.bat to add the ant libraries, 
  such as lib\parser.jar, to the CLASSPATH passed to ant.  The problem is that 
  lcp.bat *prepends* (not appends) these libraries to the user's classpath.

+ ------- Additional Comments From glennm@apache.org  2001-07-04 07:04 -------
+ Not being able to find the original lcp.bat used for Ant 1.2 (it looks like it
+ was deleted out of jakarta-ant/bin and moved to jakarta-ant/src/scripts, in the
+ process losing the history) I can't find any comments explaining the change.
+ 
+ Is there any reason to *not* implement the requested change?  The comment in the
+ ant script indicates it was changed to reflect the behaviour in the Windows
+ version (always prepend the jars to the classpath rather than append), but
+ according to this report, that wasn't always the case.
