Subject RE: [PATCH] Exec.java does not properly function on NetWare
Date Fri, 12 Oct 2001 16:38:40 GMT
One other comment on antrun.ncf, and NCF processes in general in NetWare:  NetWare also doesn't
allow me to gobble up command line parameters  like the following:

set PARAMS=
:loop
if ""%1 == "" goto runCommand
set PARAMS=%PARAMS% %1
shift
goto loop


I am wondering what it is exactly that binds me to using antrun.(bat/ncf/sh), when I could
do the same functionality in Java code?  Would it be OK for me to just call right to the command,
with a fully-specified path, and with all of the parameters?  I'm not sure exactly how well
this would function in NetWare - it just might work, getting the right current directory and
everything.  

I definitely need to get some Exec tests written, which will validate the functionality, so
that I know if whatever I do is equivalent.  It looks like there is no ExecTest at all.

I think you need to attach antrun.ncf - or did I miss that?
