Subject Re: [antlist] custom task - how to pass *.java filenames
Date Wed, 01 Aug 2001 18:20:29 GMT
I took a look at Jar, and that was too complex and confusing, so i then did
a good job of copy/paste coding from the delete task.

Seems I've done a good job of following the right path by using directory
scanner and fileset.  I won't extend MatchedTask then.
One thing I am confused over though is the excludes.  Am i meant to
implement that?  Or is that taken care of?

To whom should i report back documentation improvements?

T Master.
