Subject RE: .bat file for ant
Date Sun, 30 Dec 2001 23:05:16 GMT
Ray,

Please read
http://jakarta.apache.org/ant/manual/install.html (See note in "Installing
Ant" section)

Under Windows 98 you will need to install Ant into a short filename. I
suggest D:\Ant. This bypasses known limitations in Win98's "for" batch
command.

Cheers
Conor
