Subject Re: passing parameters to ant
Date Tue, 11 Jan 2005 15:44:30 GMT
1) IIRC there _must not_ be a space betwixt "-D" and the property: i.e. 
your command line should look like this:

    cmd /c ant -buildfile
    D:\v04_E\Build_Scripts\CvsDiffReports\automated_cvsdiffs.xml 
manualDiff
    -DDevBuild1=$1 -DDevBuild2=$2 > D:\test2.txt

2) You might consider using the "-l" option instead of redirecting the 
output.

3) Your stanza <property name="DevBuild1"> value="$(DevBuild1)"/> is 
completely wrong & totally unnecessary if you pass in the parameters 
correctly.
