Subject RE: How to escape the quotes characters in a string?
Date Tue, 08 Mar 2005 20:51:20 GMT
Here are some examples using quot and colon, as I used in the past,
while playing with cpptasks.jar and ant-contrib.jar to automate the
MSDEV Visua Studion .NET c++ builds using the Ant, to make it
platform-independent.

Following below constructs arguments as /YX"stdafx.h" /MACHINE:X86 etc
Note: (A) "#58;" stands for ":" and (B) "&quot;" stands for ";"

<compilerarg location="mid" value="/YX&quot;stdafx.h&quot;"
if="is-windows"/>

<compilerarg location="mid" value="/Fo&quot;${obj_type.dir}&quot;"
if="is-windows"/>

<linkerarg location="mid" value="/MACHINE&#58;X86" if="is-windows"/>
