Subject RE: Looking for task to add text to file.

The last solution is way too complicated.
It is much easier to add new task that does the work i needed.
I simply need to add text to DTD (to the end of list)
<!ELEMENT ... (  item1, item2..... new Item)>

Would it make more sense to break up the file into other smaller ones 
if regexp doesn't work?  Then you could use loadfile for the header 
content, have a property to store the items you want to add and another 
loadfile for the rest of the document.  Then you could echo the three 
properties into a new file in the exact order you want.  Also, if 
you're doing loadfile, you could do expandproperties and turn any ${}'s 
in the files into their actual values.
