Subject RE: nested property references
Date Thu, 26 Apr 2001 18:42:03 GMT

I made this request ;-)  I really don't understand why it would be
rejected -- as it is quite a useful feature, IMHO.  Anyways, I do have some
code somewhere in my box that does this -- so perhaps if I present the code
to the Ant dev team...  Would that have any impact on the decision to
approve this feature?  Or is it simply a time constraint problem and would
more likely be accepted in Ant 2.1 (or whatever comes after Ant 2).

It simply is impossible as Ant will not interpret ${} constructs

This has been requested for Ant 2 and is under discussion on ant-dev,
though it may very well be rejected.
