Subject Re: How to convert rel. paths to abs. paths, to pass down to lower-le vel dir builds?
Date Wed, 30 Oct 2002 02:44:32 GMT
Use <property name="parent.dir" location="${basedir}"/>

The point being that the 'location' variant of <property> is what you're 
after for parent/child builds that need to pass paths around.  The above 
example is merely that, and may not reflect exactly what you need, but 
its the idea.
