Subject Problem deleting files with ~ char in name
Date Fri, 25 Oct 2002 12:29:39 GMT
Hi All
I'm trying to get my clean target to delete class files (no problem, works
ok), and
Vim editor backup files, which have the form ''
I cant get ant to remove them - ive tried several variants in the fileset
eg includes="*~", includes="*.java\~" to no avail.
Am I doing something very wrong here, or is ~ a special char that ant cant
deal with?
<target name="clean" depends="init" description="Delete old build">
    <delete includeEmptyDirs="true" failonerror="false" verbose="true">
        <fileset dir="src" includes="*.java~"/>
