Subject Newbie question about exec/chown
Date Mon, 22 Apr 2002 22:01:10 GMT
I am trying to write an exec task in UNIX to chown a directory and files (as well as the subdirectories).
The task command I am using is:

      <exec dir="${dir}" executable="chown" os="SunOS">
           <arg line="-R user:web ${dir}/*"/>

This returns:
     [exec] chown: /data/netscape/docs/target/*: No such file or directory
     [exec] Result: 1

This seems to come out well when I <echo> the entire task command.

Any thoughts?
