Subject RE: Newbie help <echo>

I might be suffering from too much turkey and seasonal brain-fog, but
when I started using ant, I began with little tiny scripts where the
effects (or not) were immediately obvious and if something looked funny,
or I didn't understand it, then I ran ant with the "-v" option to get
more details on what ant thought it was doing versus what I thought it
should be doing. I have not found a need to ever use <echo> to date.

Remember, very large build scripts are made by adding one target, or
task, at a time to very small build scripts! :-)

Hope this helps,
