Subject copy tasks and filelist
Date Mon, 14 Oct 2002 22:06:39 GMT

I'm trying to use ant 1.5.1 in our current build environment which is 
using recursive Makefiles. The files which are part of the build are 
referenced explicitly in the Makefiles.

I've written a simple Makefile parser which parses the Makefiles and 
extract the file lists. The parser stores the file lists as comma 
separated strings in properties in the project, e.g. IMAGE_FILES which 
contains "foo.gif, bar.gif".

Now I want to copy these files to a certain directory but the copy task 
does not support the <filelist> tasks just <filesets> and individual 
files. I was not able to copy the files from the ${IMAGE_FILES} property 
to an output directory. How do I do this? Do I have to use the <exec> task?

P.S.: I would like to traverse the tree as little as possible as it is 
rather large.

It's amazing how much easier it is for a team to work 
together when no one has any idea where they're going.
