Subject Checking existence of folders with a particular naming convention | Need Help
Date Fri, 24 Aug 2007 09:45:08 GMT
Hi,
I wanted to check for the existence of folders having a fixed pattern as
part of their name.
I checked the <available> task but here I cannot pass a regular expression
or wildcard character in the attribute 'file'.

Following is my code (which is not working):

<project>
<target name="clean">
<available property="isadir"
                   file="*utpal_***"
                type="dir"/>
</target>
<target name="doc" depends="clean" if="isadir">
        <echo>folder exists</echo>
</target>
</project>

I have folders named utpal_004500 and utpal_004600. I want to check if any
folder that starts with the name utpal_ exists.
Kindly let me know how I can achieve this.

Thanks
Utpal
