Subject RE: Converting C / visual C++ makefiles to Ant
Date Tue, 20 Nov 2001 21:07:36 GMT

I've converted one medium sized VB / C++ based project from batch files to
ANT, using VB's and MSDEV's command line parameters.  It wasn't particularly
painful, and is noticeably better than plain batch files, but is not quite
as flexible as a script based solution such as PERL.  In fact, I am looking
at dumping ANT and going with a custom PERL based solution  (More scripting,
but also more flexible).  ANT is neat, but I think its niche remains with
Java solutions.

It's just my $.02.  Your Mileage May Vary.

I use <exec executable="make"> ; you can also call visual studio with some
command line params which also works.
