Cvs Tasks doesn't handle wildcards, so why not add a fileset





------- Additional Comments From antoine@apache.org  2004-02-07 12:25 -------
the attached patch is not good enough, it will not handle the case where the
length of the command line exceeds what the operating system can handle. See
DefaultCompilerAdapter#executeExternalCompile to see how to do this properly (ie
command lines should not exceed a length of 4096.

The changelog task has already nested filesets, but it is broken, because like
your patch it does not check how big the command line gets.

I tried this :

 <cvschangelog dir="c:/dev/asf/ant.head" 
                destfile="changelogant.xml"  >
     <fileset dir="c:/dev/asf/ant.head/src/main">
         <include name="**/*.java"/>
     </fileset>
</cvschangelog>

and it fails with a CreateProcesss IOException !!!


We need an xargs task.

I think the xargs task should extend ExecTask

Then for instance cvs with a fileset could be delegated to xargs, and a lot of
other similar stuff too.
