Subject RE: how to reference a command line argument inside ant script
Date Wed, 29 Aug 2001 22:04:13 GMT
I was actually hoping for something more user friendly.  I'm trying to get
our QA dept to get the source for a project from cvs and then build it.  The
build part is easy with ant, but the cvs stuff I always seem to have to
resort to yet another script that I have to maintain on 3 platforms.

Oh, well...

Doh.  I think I need to get to bed earlier.  Here is what it really
should be

ant cvsrev -Drevision-name="build-24".

Also, revision-name in the target should be replaced with ${revision-name}
