Subject Ant fileset - does tilde have special meaning
Date Wed, 13 Jun 2001 22:38:22 GMT
in my build.xml

 <target name="clean">
    <delete dir="${deploy.home}"/>
    <delete>
       <fileset dir="." includes="**/*.*~"/>
    </delete>
  </target>

the tilde ('~') appears to have some special meaning for ant - it gets
ignored

I have VIM backup files all throughout the src dirs - I'd like them to be
deleted on an
Ant clean command.  The backup files have a format of *.*~ (ie
somefile.jsp~).

The above delete command doesn't work.

I also tried  "**/*.*\~"   ie escaping the ~

Help please,
