Subject Re: # character causes problem parsing -lib paths
Date Wed, 10 May 2006 10:33:28 GMT
I have just tested with java 1.3. and indeed # does not
work there. I have not looked into this too much, but can
only assume that this is due to a bug with java 1.3 which
was fixed for java 1.4. I am not too sure if ant can
work-around this issue.
