Subject matching a string in a property
Date Wed, 20 Mar 2002 00:56:30 GMT
Hi, I have a question regarding finding a string in a property.  Say I have
a property like this:

<property name="foo" value="a_very_short_string">

Now I want to search that property for a string, let's say "short".  If the
property has "short" in it then I want to do task A.  If not, then do not do
task A.  Something like this:

<condition property="doTaskA" value="true">
   <exists key="short" inproperty="foo"/>    #made this up for illustration

<target name="A" depends="doTaskA">

That's the jist of it.  Is there any way for me to do this in ant?
