Subject -propertyfile does not expand properties
Date Fri, 27 Feb 2004 15:37:30 GMT
it seems that using the -propertyfile switch to ant does not expand properties in the file.
 if i have a property file whose contents are:

then c ends up being set to ${b}c instead of "abc" as expected when running ant via: ant -propertyfile .the expansion works fine if i use a <property file=""/>
element within the build.xml file. anyone else notice this behavior?
