Subject Re: Excluding lines from files?
Date Thu, 12 Sep 2002 19:58:19 GMT

I am dealing with Java files. The problem is that our version management 
software adds to files automatically some information including path.
And because some path can include "\u" sequence which prevents compilation 
and JavaDoc I would like to get rid of the line.  The line is already
part of the comments and it can be easily identified since it always 
starts with the same prefix.



----------- here is an snippet with example ---------------

What kinds of files are they?  If, for example, they
were Java files or some other kind of file with the
concept of a comment, you might be able to use the
replaceregexp task and comment out whole lines
containing the given string.
