Subject RE: echo true or false
Date Wed, 05 Feb 2003 21:15:34 GMT
Here's an example (great, ain't it...):

  <target name="javadocs.uptodate?">
    <mkdir dir="${apidocs}" />
    <uptodate property="javadocs.uptodate"
              targetfile="${apidocs}/index.html">
      <srcfiles dir="${src}"
                includes="**/*.java,
                          **/package.html,
                          **/doc-files/**" />
    </uptodate>

    <!-- All this to print "true" or "false" for the property value -->
    <condition property="javadocs-uptodate-value" value="true">
      <isset property="javadocs.uptodate" />
    </condition>
    <property name="javadocs-uptodate-value" value="false" />
    <echo message="javadocs-uptodate = ${javadocs-uptodate-value}" />
  </target>

Subject: echo true or false

The <available>, <condition>, etc. set of tasks all work by setting a
property if a condition is met.  My problem is that I would like to echo
the results of this test.  
<condition property="my.property>
	... whatever tests
</condition>
<echo message="my.property=${my.property}"/>

If the property is set,
"true" will be echoed.  If it hasn't been set, "${my.property}" will be
echoed.

Pretty ugly.  I would like "false" to be echoed.

I would like the ability to set a property true or false depending on
the results of a conditional test.

What is the easiest way to accomplish what I am after?
