At least in Ant 1.3 beta2:

<execon executable="somecommand" parallel="false" >
  <arg value="arg1"/>
  <arg value="arg2"/>
  <fileset dir="/tmp"/>

invokes somecommand arg1 SOURCEFILENAME arg2 for each file in /tmp replacing
SOURCEFILENAME with the absolute filename of each file in turn. If parallel
had been set to true, SOURCEFILENAME would be replaced with the absolute
filenames of all files separated by spaces.
