Subject Nested property value de-referencing. Possible???
Date Tue, 16 Dec 2003 19:31:16 GMT

Say you have a property called env set to a value of "qa"  and you have a
property called qa.install.dir  set to /local/install/qa.

Is it possible to do something  like the following

	<property name="installDir"   value="${$env}.install.dir}" />
	<echo "Install dir = ${installDir} "/>

and have the echo spit out Install dir = /local/install/qa

If nested dereferencing is not possible, what is the standard ant approach
to handling these situations?
