Subject How to delete .# files with Ant
Date Mon, 31 Dec 2001 15:35:53 GMT
I tried searching the list for an answer beforehand but had difficulty
becuase I can't search for ".#".

I made patternset that should select all junk temp files in my project.
Here it is:

 <!-- specify junk -->
 <patternset id="junk" >

  <include name="temp/**"/>
  <!-- generated by Resin -->
  <include name="WEB-INF/work/**"/>
  <include name="WEB-INF/tmp/**"/>
  <!-- generated by CVS -->
  <include name="**/.#*"/>
  <!-- misc -->
  <include name="**/*.log"/>
  <include name="**/*.bak"/>

Unfortunately, the <include name="**/.#*"/> does not work at all.  I have
all these .# files littered around that are named something like:
".#portlet.jsp.1.19"  for example.  I think CVS is generating them.  What is
wrong here?
