Subject AW: Trouble deleting hidden files using ftp task
Date Wed, 24 Nov 2004 07:25:31 GMT
The dot is a special case. Try that
  <fileset>
      <include name="**"/>
      <include name="**/.*"/>
  </fileset>

Usually the dot is used for separating the filename from its suffix. So the
* does not catch that.
