Subject Asterisk shell expansion
Date Thu, 05 Jun 2003 15:18:15 GMT
Hi ppl,

Problem: the asterisk in an <arg> tag is not expanded. How can this be done? 
I checked the faq and the mailinglist archives, but alas. I'm using Ant 
1.5.3 on Linux.

Background: I use Ant to run PlDoc on some PL/SQL code (embedded procedural 
language of the Oracle database). It's similar to JavaDoc.

     <target name="pldoc">
         <java classname="net.sourceforge.pldoc.PLDoc" fork="true" 
                 <pathelement location="${pldocHome}/xalan/bin/xalan.jar"/>
                 <pathelement location="${pldocHome}/xalan/bin/xml-apis.jar"/>
                 <pathelement location="${pldocHome}/pldoc.jar"/>
                 <pathelement location="${pldocHome}"/>
             <arg value="-d"/>
             <arg value="${pldoc}"/>
             <arg value="-doctitle"/>
             <arg value="Title"/>
             <arg value="-overview"/>
             <arg value="${pldocOverview}"/>
             <arg value="*.pks"/>
