Put each argument which requires quoting in a seperate <arg> tag...
<exec executable="blah">
    <arg value="-option1 arg1"/>
    <arg value="-option2 arg2"/>
results in:
blah "-option1 arg1" "-option2 arg2"

Subject: More issues with Ant and Starteam

Since I was unable to figure out the touch issue with the starteam task, I
have decided to abandon the task in favor of the command line interface.
Ant is complaining about the exec task below.

        <exec executable="stcmd" dir="${build.basedir}"> 
          <arg line=" co -p
" -fs"/>


The error I get dose not make much sense: 

        C:\weblogic\CoventryDevelopment\build.xml:90: Whitespace required
before attributes. 

I have determined that the issue is the quotes within the command line.  I
have tried replacing the \" with the &quot; macro, but I got "Reference to
undefined entity".  I even tried using &quote; just in case.  I am wondering
if anyone has an example of a command line that has embedded quotes in it?
I am using ANT 1.3 on Win2K.
