Ant + Windows = Ant doesn't work and is incompatible because WIndows command line sucks and
ANt developers didn't take that into account

           Summary: Ant + Windows = Ant doesn't work and is incompatible
                    because WIndows command line sucks and ANt developers
                    didn't take that into account
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.5.1
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Blocker
          Priority: Other
         Component: Build Process
        AssignedTo: ant-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: blackened@austin.rr.com


I guess Ant doesn't work in Windows Millenium, because when I pull up a command 
prompt and try to run ant, it scrolls by a bunch of crap which is basically 
standard error output.  Because it's Windows, command prompt doesn't have a 
scroll bar.  Because it's standard error, I can't redirect the output to a 
file.  Because -logfile doesn't print standard error, I can't use command line 
switches to save the output.  Basically, unless Ant produces less than like 20 
lines of output, or unless it starts printing output to standard output, or 
unless I find an alternative to dos command prompt that isn't a piece of shit, 
I can't use Ant on Windows.  And I'm pissed because I just wasted 2 hours 
trying to find a way around this, searching google groups, downloading command 
prompt alternatives, and nothing f***ing works.  You guys should really 
consider redoing the output of Ant so that it works under Windows if you want 
Windows users to use it, because not everyone has the latest and greatest 
windows with scrollbar support in command prompt.  Windows f***ing sucks and if 
it wasn't for the project's need to work on Windows, I would have ditched it a 
long time ago.  I can't believe how rediculous this is, a program that prints 
output that you can't read.  Sorry for my frustration but it really, really, 
really really really pisses me off..
