Subject Need documentation change for if / unless
Date Sat, 02 Feb 2008 15:15:01 GMT

I filed this bug regarding the use of the if and unless attributes of <target>:

http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=44315

Matt Benson pointed out that the problem is that you don't use the ${} notation when naming
a property in an if or unless attribute.  This is confusing because everywhere else in Ant
when you reference a property you use the ${} notation.

The documentation for Targets doesn't mention this:

http://ant.apache.org/manual/using.html#targets

The fact that you don't use ${} notation for the if / unless attributes needs be made explicit
in the documentation.

Are there any other places where you use a property without using the ${} notation?  If so
these also need to be made explicit.  If the if / unless attributes are the only place where
this applies that should also be noted in the documentation for if / unless.

Thanks.

Dean
