  Running Ant by Hand
    If you have installed Ant in the do-it-yourself way, Ant can be
    started with:

    java -Dant.home=c:\ant [options] [target]

    These instructions actually do exactly the same as the ant command.
    The options and target are the same as when running Ant with the ant
    command. This example assumes you have set your classpath to include:

    jars/classes for your XML parser 
    the JDK's required jar/zip files

Any documentation is only as good as the willingness of people to actually
read it :)
