AFAIK you have made an incorrect assessment. Ant is not designed to work well
with non-Java sources. Ant will not automatically generated dependencies between
.cpp sources and .h files. I have been thinking about moving from standard make
to a new make system for a large C/C++ project. Under consideration are:

     * jam
     * cook
     * cons

I am prefering cons at the moment mainly because it's extensible (mainly because
it's written in Perl - makefiles are just Perl sources).

Dear jakarta:

I am a new user of the Ant tool.  I have been tasked with moving our nmake
files which support only c++ on WIndows to platform independent tool which
also supports java and Linux.

I have determined that ANT is a reasonable tool for the job.  Is my
assessmet correct?

If so, do you have any examples of ANT files with a corresponding makefile
examples?   Initially, I will be converting from Makefiles for C++ source
file to ANT,
so any like-kind examples would be of great help.

Thank you
