Subject Getting directory information from <subant>
Date Fri, 23 Jul 2004 19:37:34 GMT

I have a target that I want to run against each directory in a directory
tree that contains .xml files.

<subant> seems like the right way to do this, using the genericAntFile

However, I am then calling a custom ant task that requires, as one of
its parameters, the directory name that so that it can name a resulting
file by that name.

If I was to hard code the directory names in the subant task this would
be easy, but as I need to have this work dynamically on any directories
that contain .xml files, I need to have some way to calculate the
directory name.

I could even potentially do it in the custom ant task, but how can I
know the directory the subant file is currently being run against?
