Why thank you. I'm going to be fair: I think you should at least take a look
at the oreilly book, say in your local bookstore with a
coffee/ice-cream/beer to hand and see if it meets your immediate needs. I
shall surely do the same thing myself. Of course, now when I see a bookstore
or library, I see the collected suffering of many authors, rather than a
place of learning.

And there is the ant docs themselves: remember, any and all contribs to the
ant docs are happily accepted, so if anyone on ant-user wants to contribute
to the project, pick something and write about it.

Thank You,
