Subject Simple (?) question about "<available>"
Date Fri, 20 May 2005 20:20:54 GMT

I'm having trouble specifying a particular "available" task.  Here's 
what I want, though Ant isn't happy with it:

    <target name="check_for_zip_file">
        <available property="ZIP_FILE_EXISTS">
                <include name="${DIR}/*.zip"/>
                <exclude name="${DIR}/"/>

Ant says:  "The <path> type doesn't support the nested 'include' element."

OK, but can anyone tell me how to write what I want?  Essentially, set 
the ZIP_FILE_EXISTS property if there's at least one match to 
"${DIR}/*.zip", though NOT counting "${DIR}/"...

Thanks in advance,
Rich Wagner
