Subject Really puzzled
Date Fri, 02 Aug 2002 10:12:45 GMT
I have successfully installed Ant on my Windows machine and used it to rebuild 
some code I have modified (the Grinder), worked great  :)

Also have now installed Ant on my new Linux (RedHat) machine, however I am a 
Linux newbie and am completely stumped as to how to use it   :(
The documentation quite clearly states that after the installation it is as 
simple as typing   ant   (in a directory that contains a build.xml)  
but there is no unix shell script by the name of   ant    
there is ant.bat and that works fine on the Windows machine, and there are 
perl and python scripts ( and but as I noted the 
documentation is quite explicit,  "type  ant",  and there is no 
differentiation based on OS (that I can find), I have even downloaded an 
earlier version of ant just in case the shell script had been lost in my 
first attempt.

I am sure there is a very simple answer, but I have read the documentation 
forward, back and sideways.  My apologies for asking basic linux/unix 
questions on this list, but this has me really puzzled as to what I am not 

Many thanks,
