Subject Re: compile problems
Date Thu, 31 Aug 2000 22:57:43 GMT

It looks like you are using a really old version of
Ant. Modern compile was simply an empty method back then -
hence you need to upgrade Ant or else change from modern
compiling to classic compiling. BTW where did you get that
versioj of Ant ???
