Subject RE: Target or macrodef?
Date Mon, 23 Aug 2004 17:57:47 GMT
If you need to call the code more than once, then a macrodef is
going to be much more efficient.

If you make it a target, you would need <antcall> to call it, which
can be much more time consuming.  Keep in mind however (and someone
correct me if i'm wrong), that any properties you set in a macro will
also get set for the calling target, which can be problematic.

Subject: Target or macrodef?


I have a piece of code that I need to call repeatedly. The code has
three simple arguments. I can write the code as a target or as a
macrodef. What should I consider when choosing between these two
implementations?
