Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 44347] Directories not deleted when a filename contains a backslash
Date Wed, 14 May 2008 13:16:51 GMT

--- Comment #3 from Colm Smyth <>  2008-05-14 06:16:50 PST ---
On Linux, the following build file... 

<project name="deleteSlashTest">
<property name="dist" value="/tmp/\notexists" />
<delete includeEmptyDirs="true">
<fileset dir="${dist}"/>

...produces two unexpected results with ant -debug: 

Setting project property: dist -> /tmp/\notexists

/tmp/build.xml:3: Directory does not exist:/tmp/notexists


Notice that the backslash is in the property, but not in the output of the
delete task.

Can you modify this sample to suit your system and add the results of ant
