Subject Re: how to use '<' in a arg value
Date Wed, 25 Jul 2001 07:10:32 GMT
If you want redirection, you need to exec a shell to process it.

Thus you'd need something like this:

<exec executable="sh">
   <arg value="-c"/>
   <arg value="mysql -h server -u xxx -pqwerty database <script.sql" />
</exec>


As many times as I've seen this answered lately, it should be put into
the FAQ.
