Subject multiple file check
Date Thu, 06 Feb 2003 17:58:11 GMT
I would like to compare two directories and see if any files in directory_A
exist in directory_B.

Is this possible ?

One way would be to use an exec task to run an OS script:
Something along the lines of "ls -R1 > filelist.txt" against directory_A and
then use this list for a find command against directory_B.  But does ANT
have a task I'm unaware of ?
