Subject Ant Get FileSize using exec?
Date Tue, 02 Nov 2004 12:43:07 GMT
I am trying to display the filesize, or set a property to be equak to it.
I tried the exec tag, and can do this:

  <exec executable="ls">
    <arg line=" -al /export/home/kellyga/sparcs/war/SPARCS.war"/>

to get this:

 [exec] -rwxr--r--   1 kellyga  develop  4338595 Nov  1 10:51

But all I need is the filesize.
Can anyone help?
