Subject RE: Listing targets and their dependants
Date Thu, 20 Jun 2002 13:48:52 GMT
I'd recommend the ant2dot.xsl solution Stefan & Co created. Very useful
graphical output. After running this on my master buildfile I was suitably
embarrassed by the meaningless dependencies I had. I managed to remove over
25% of my target dependencies and got a pretty picture for my documentation
as well.

Here is the email thread.
