Subject RE: Is the [javac] compiler output prefix really necessary?
Date Thu, 05 Oct 2000 11:24:48 GMT
I've found the same problem with Kawa. 
I added a custom command to the Kawa menu to run Ant and direct its output
to the build window
but the [javac] bit prevents it from parsing the filename and line numbers
when you double click it.

I'd vote to make it togglable (is that a new word?)
