Subject RE: containsregexp selector Ant 1.6.5
Date Fri, 05 Aug 2005 06:38:50 GMT
Thank you very much. This is what I thought might be the case. I will
probably pursue writing my own custom selector for this task.

For catching in several lines you usually have to set a flag ("m" I think).
I dont know if you can specify the flag inside the expression. The selector
[1] doesnt support specifying flags directly.


0120:        if (myRegExp == null) {
0121:             myRegExp = new RegularExpression();
0122:             myRegExp.setPattern(userProvidedExpression);
0123:             myExpression = myRegExp.getRegexp(getProject());
0124:         }
