Subject Re: Copiing newer files to a directory [was: using file names]
Date Thu, 14 Apr 2005 05:09:17 GMT
Hello Roman,

this would be the most simple solution using ant :

<!-- define the fileset with the newer files -->
<fileset dir="source" id="newerfiles">
     <depend targetdir="result"/>
<copy todir="input" preservefiletimes="true">
       <fileset refid="source"/>
