Subject RE: Ant binary build file may be corrupted.
Date Thu, 22 Mar 2001 22:16:23 GMT

You downloaded from here

Did you read this on that page?
"This is release 1.3 of Ant. It is available in both binary and source

and must be untarred with a GNU compatible version of tar."

If I made that somehow bigger, would you have read it?
