Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 44812] New: ~ doesn't work in excludes
Date Fri, 11 Apr 2008 21:18:44 GMT

           Summary: ~ doesn't work in excludes
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.7.0
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Core

I have the following 

        <property name="excludes.files"
                        **/Not*Being*Used/**,**/~*" />

I also tried it using

        <property name="excludes.files"
                        **/Not*Being*Used/**,~*" />

        <copy todir="${help.local.home}">
                <fileset dir="${help.accp.home}" 
                        casesensitive="false" >
                        <exclude name="${excludes.files}" />
But it still copied a file whose file name started with "~"

This might be address in the Ant manual, but it appears that all search
engines, including the one used by the Ant manual (Google) ignore special
characters, including "<".
This is a real handicap for Ant.
