I get real sick of people complaining about Ant on the ant user group and
talking up Make all the time.  If Make is so great and solves all your
problems then just use it and shut up.  On the other hand offering suggested
enhancements to a build tool rather than bashing one or the other is more
constructive.

OK. This works, but if this is it, something seems broke to me.

Thanks William.

MRA.

I'm no Ant guru and you will probably get a better answer to your question
but I believe it has to do with the way your delete task is set up...you
specified the top-level directory...I think the below task would work...
<target name="clean">
		<delete includeEmptyDirs="true">
              <fileset dir="${dir_classes}">
                <include name="**/*.*/>
              </fileset>
            </delete>
	</target>

First my complaint: this is trivial using make!

Now the question: Why does the following seemingly
simple and straight-forward ant xml
script _not_ remove the subdirs under the
classes dir (Windows NT OS)? Thanks in advance.

	<target name="clean">
		<delete dir="${dir_classes}/*"/>
	</target>

NOTE: ** after the / doesn't work either!
