Subject RE: create file taskdef

You may want to try out the propertyfile task (this is in ant 1.3)

This works on java properties files, so it may not be exactly what you want.
It may be a good start if you want to build a more general config file
solution. You could also use the <echo> task but that would be a bit ugly.
