Subject Re: r_e_m_o_v_e a string within a path
Date Tue, 01 Jul 2003 19:18:45 GMT
Hi !
I tried that and it fixes the first substitution (i.e. the path now only contains '/', however
internally represented with \\ when dumped to a file), thanks. the second one still does not
work.
if I try to hardcode
<replace file="${tmp.properties}" token="C\:\\Data\\1671sc\\src\\dao\\main\\" value=""
summary="yes"/>
this is working fine. I'd have however hope that the replace task would have been transparent
of the OS
(then how to know the string is a path ? o.k).
I'll make it work by replacing the generated string in the property file as a UNIX path, the
performing
the replacment.
still wondering if there could be a direct way to assign a property to its 'display' representation
instead of its internal java representation (with escaped '\' for instance) - more direct
than
pathconvert for instance ?
seb.
