Subject Re: how to copy a bunch of *unrelated* files ?
Date Fri, 29 Mar 2002 00:24:24 GMT
Actually, I think the most direct solution might be to allow <copy> (and
<move>, <delete>) to take a list of files instead of only either a single
file or a set of files from the same directory root. The <delete> task
"sort of" "used to" -- "sort of", because they still all needed to be
rooted to the directory specified in the 'dir' attribute (so it's not
really what you want, but at least it was list :), and "used to", because
it still does, but it'll bark at you about its use being deprecated.

If <copy> took a comma-separated list of files, you could establish your
<path>, then <pathconvert> it to a comma-separated list and reference that
property in the <copy>. If you think that might be the way to go, would
you be up for looking through the code and seeing how doable that'd be?
