>From the manual:
"When no arguments are specified, Ant looks for a build.xml file in the
current directory and, if found, uses that file as the build file and runs
the target specified in the default attribute of the <project> tag."

In the 'Running Ant' section...

You can also tell ant to use a different build file by using '-buildfile'

	ant -buildfile test-build.xml

Subject: build xml?

Ok I suppose this is probably a frequent newbie question. Which I am a
newbie to ant, but I try to run Ant on Win 2000. I have the classpath set
for the ant.jar and I also have it set for the xml-xxxx.jar. Ant I have the
path and all of the enviroment variables set to the correct paths. But when
I go to run ant, I receive an error upon entering the command "Buildfile:
build.xml does not exist; Bulid Failed" Where should I put the xml file or
what am I missing here.

btw, I did STFW and RTFM, but I saw no refernece to the bulid.xml
