This depends on the compiler you are using to compile your sources. Ant is
only a wrapper around javac, it does not implement a compiler itself.

Using javac (from JDK 1.3.1/1.4, maybe others) this could be done using
the -verbose argument (which seems to be supported by Ant, see the

But I don't think that an output like

is really useful, especially for large projects where you compile more than
one class, so you may need to write you own task (or extend the javac-task)
to filter out the "useful" lines.
