Subject Re: How to echo date-time to log file? - related question
Date Thu, 16 Sep 2004 13:11:05 GMT
So I can't have an Ant task for doing this or do I need to manually
add this token to each file. Ideally, It would be nice to checkout
files and place them in a hold area and then have an Ant task as
mentioned earlier iterate over all the file; appending a VERSION in
the HEADER of each file.

- Thanks
