Subject how to reference a command line argument inside ant script
Date Wed, 29 Aug 2001 21:16:20 GMT

I want to create a target in my build.xml file for getting a tagged revision
of code out of CVS, with the user specifying the revision name on the
command line.
	ant cvsrev build-24

My question is how do I access the argument "build-24" within the build.xml

<!-- check for required environment variable prior to doing anything -->
<target name="init.cvs" unless="osEnv.CVSROOT">
	<fail message="To use ANT CVS you must have CVSROOT defined"/>

<target name="cvsrev" depends="init.cvs">
	<!-- cvs -q checkout -P -r revision-name module -->
	<cvs command="-q checkout -P -r revision-name ${}"/>

What should be "revision-name" be replaced with?
