Subject Re: Retrieving a list of directory names from fileset without the fully qualified path
Date Thu, 01 Apr 2004 21:50:00 GMT


This is just what I've been trying to figure the last few days!

Yours was the *nix version , here's the Windoze version for the regexp:

<propertyregex property="arg" global="true" override="true"
       input="K:\usr\dir\lib\bla.java"
       regexp="[a-zA-Z]:\\([^\\\s]+\\)+"
       replace=""
       defaultValue="failed" />


Now all I need to find out is how to do this as a global replacement on 
a string of semicolon-separated paths. Would it be possible to replace 
the semicolon with a newline?


Thanks for posting your finding.

Regards,

Tarlika Elisabeth Schmitz
