Subject Re: Wild card values with exec task
Date Tue, 16 Nov 2004 17:38:12 GMT
I'm guessing the user is exec'ing the linker directly.  Remember, the
exec task has no understanding of wildcards, so the asterisk needs to be
interpreted by a shell.  Try this:

<exec executable="/bin/sh" dir=...>
    <arg value="-c" />
    <arg value="<complete linker command and args>" />
