<exec> regular expressions

           Summary: <exec> regular expressions
           Product: Ant
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: Other
         Component: Wrapper scripts
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: dgreer@fedex.com


I have a need to do file globbing within the arguments to <exec>, but for UNIX
systems the arguements passed to antRun are escaped.  Prefixing the exec portion
of the script with "eval" works (i.e. eval exec "$CMD" "$@"), but I hate to
write build files which are dependant on my custom hack.  File globbing works
fine if used on a Windows based machine.  Can this change be made to the antRun
script for the next version, or is there a way to allow file globbing when
depending on the VM's execution facilities?  Another option would be to somehow
incorporate filesets into the arguements of <exec>.  Thanks.

Derek
