Subject problems with chmod
Date Tue, 31 Jul 2001 11:20:53 GMT

Hi all,

I originally sent this to alexandria-dev so apologies for any

I am using alexandria on a medium sized java project and I think it's great.
However as it's final step it does a chmod on all the output, eg for the
javadoc html files. I am running on an SGI Irix box (not sure if this is
relevant). The chmod wouldn't work (Result: -1) and when I tried to run a
similar chmod on the command line it complained that 'Arg list too long'.  I
then modified the ant to try the chmod task with parameter
'parallel="false"' but this just gives an answer of 'Execute failed: Too many files open'.

This would seem to be a serious drawback. Is there any tidy (or even untidy)
way to deal with this?

Has this been seen before, perhaps I'm forgetting something (I'm relatively
new to this).
