Subject Re: what does "messages should have been provided" mean?
Date Mon, 03 Sep 2001 17:51:39 GMT
It just means your compiler should have (assuming it's in any way
reasonable) provided error messages saying what went wrong with the
compile. This question has come up often enough to make me think we should
probably change what Ant says -- maybe something like: "Compile failed.
Refer to error messages provided by the compiler for more details."
