Subject RE: ANT Task for latex
Date Mon, 15 Sep 2003 23:24:52 GMT
Sorry Dirk,

Unless there is a java version of Latex, which I doubt, you will
have to call exec (or apply if you have multiple documents). 
There is no other option for calling non-java executables.

Even if you were to implement a latex task it would be a wrapper
around exec.
