Subject RE: How to concatenate files in ant
Date Tue, 15 May 2001 19:42:45 GMT
I'm having the same problem. 

Actually what I want to do is the following:

echo "blah blah blah" > foo.txt
echo bar.txt >> foo.txt

Could you please this task or e-mail it to me?

I wrote a task to do this and would be happy to make it
available. I've been using it for months without a problem to create
EJB XML descriptors from lots (!) of individual XML files. The task
could probably written more elegantly, but I've only been doing Java
for a few months now :-)
