Subject Dynamic version file generation
Date Thu, 01 Aug 2002 14:31:19 GMT
HI All,
    I want to do the following with an ant 'release' target (syntax = "ant
release -Dversion=3_1":

Currently it does a clean, build, cvs tag and creates a .tar.gz file upon
release, I want it to also :

   1. dynamically create a file in a specific location called VERSION which
contains the line "3_1"

   2. cvs commit that VERSION file. (already done - trivial)

 In this way a VERSION file specific to the release version is generated and
is part of the version control
 and the tarball.

 I have done this already using an <exec ....>  but there is I suspect a
cleaner (i.e. non-fork/exec) way to 
 generate a file dynamically - has anyone any ideas ?

Any help much appreciated.
