You can also use this:

<exec dir="C:\CVS_DB\WeightsEngine" executable="NMAKE.EXE">
     <arg line='/f WeightsEngine.mak CFG="WeightsEngine -
Win32Release"'/>  
</exec>

Subject: How to escape the quotes characters in a string?

Hi,

In my build.xml, I'm using the Ant exec task as follow:

<exec dir="C:\CVS_DB\WeightsEngine" executable="NMAKE.EXE">
     <arg line="/f WeightsEngine.mak CFG="WeightsEngine -
Win32Release""/>  
</exec>

When I try to build, Ant reports an error regarding the double quotes
that I've around WeightsEngine - Win32Release string.
 
BUILD FAILED
C:\CVS_DB\ build.xml:78: Element type "arg" must be followed by either
attribute specifications, ">" or "/>".

So, does anyone know how to escape the quote characters in a string?

I'm using Apache Ant version 1.6.2 compiled on July 16 2004 on WindowXP.

I need to put quotes around the value of the above CFG parameters,
otherwise the Nmake command will only see the first part WeigntsEgnine!
As follow:

<exec dir="C:\CVS_DB\WeightsEngine" executable="NMAKE.EXE">
          <arg line="/f WeightsEngine.mak CFG=WeightsEngine -
Win32Release"/>  </exec>

The above generates the following error:

[exec] Invalid configuration "WeightsEngine" specified.
[exec] You can specify a configuration when running NMAKE [exec] by
defining the macro CFG on the command line. For example:
[exec] NMAKE /f "WeightsEngine.mak" CFG=3D"WeightsEngine - Win32 Debug"

 Thanks,

    Sameh
