/ Mike McNally <m5@works.com> was heard to say:
| The "overwrite" flag, according to the ant manual, instructs the <copy>
| task to "overwrite existing files even if the destination files are
| newer".

Yes, without that flag the following replacements occurred every time
which wasn't useful :-)

| Also, note that target names in ant are simply the names of the targets;
| there are no external semantics.  In "make", terget names are implicitly
| file names unless you mark them otherwise.

Yes, I understand that, I'm just wondering if there's some simpler ant
idiom for expressing the conditionality of a target.

                                        Be seeing you,
                                          norm
