Subject Substitutions in ANT
Date Wed, 26 Jul 2000 12:49:44 GMT
I'm looking at ANT to use for building
some project and I've got some questions.

Replace, keySubst and Filter substitute
strings with strings. 

Q1) Are there any plans to add regular expressions, e.g.
    the jakarta-regexp stuff? I know that might cause
    problems with ant variables but surely there is some
    escaping.  

Q2) Any way to insert special characters like <CR>, <LF> etc.?

Q3) using Filter - what's their scope, i.e. do they 
   effect all file/dir copy operations or only the next
   one or all subsequently declared but not the previously
   declared ones? The documentation is not clear about it.

Cheers,
T
