Subject Re: how to supplement javac compile dependencies?
Date Fri, 20 Oct 2000 19:46:04 GMT
Thanks for the replies.  I think that I'll default to a full compile,
but provide a 'fast' compile target for those who want it.

BTW, I can't find an <uptodate> task in the docs or code.  Is it only in
the development code, not yet in the stable release?
