Subject RE: does and already have platform specific code? (RE: Why can't <del ete> just simply delete the directory?)

No, not a major performance tweak.  It's just that <delete
dir="${build.loc}"> can take over a minute with 2500 class files to delete,
while it takes only 4 seconds doing a "rmdir /s /q ${build.loc}" on NT.
It's certainly not enough to warrant the headaches of introducing platform
code.  The reason I was asking was if there existed platform code already,
then adding a platform rmdir would be relatively minor.  Again, it's not
enough to warrant adding platform code.

Are we really talking a performance tweak -- I've not noticed a delete of a
rather large directory taking much time at all. If you are noticing
differently, then it would be interesting to figure out why.
