Subject Re: Error output from javac compiles being blocked
Date Thu, 14 Apr 2005 11:03:05 GMT
it works OK for me, maybe its ants logging  'adornments' which is 
wrapping the output and throwing you.  try running ant with -emacs or 
logging output to a file.  It can be hard to decipher what the ^ is 
pointing to when lines are longer than the console width.
