Subject RE: tarfileset not working: solved
Date Thu, 26 Jul 2001 12:46:09 GMT
After a bit of hacking about with the source code, the problem turns out to
be nothing more than that it can't find release.ksh. Doh.

In my defence, the file was present and but with a capital 'R' at the front
and I'm on NT so I was convinced  could see the file!

Subject: tarfileset not working

Like a few other people I've had problems with the tarfileset and so
downloaded the latest to try that. I've still got a problem. Using
this build file

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<project name="SCARE" default="Build">
    <target name="Build">
        <tar tarfile="${target.dir}/scare.tar">
            <tarfileset dir="${target.dir}/DatabaseLoaderConfigs"

Gives this output

$ ant -verbose -Dtarget.dir=c:/cygwin/home/helliwm/release -buildfile

After the run its still the same.

I've recompiled will a new log message in it to make sure I was
picking up the new version and I am. Anybody any suggestions? Am I just
doing something stupid?
