Subject RE: RE: Re: Javadoc task not correctly interpreting ** in paths?
Date Fri, 23 Nov 2001 12:05:28 GMT
  And if you try:

  File f = new File( "**" );
  File arq[ ] = f.listFiles( );

  The value of arq is null, i think that it should work once that the OS. suport this command.
That´s my opnion, for me it should be something like :

  File f = new File( "/" );
  File arq[ ] = f.listFiles( );
