Subject Re: <delete> mix of files and dirs ?
Date Fri, 26 Aug 2005 17:52:00 GMT
If you already have the list of fully-qualified
files/directories that need to be deleted you may want
to:

1) Write the list out to a temp file
2) use the includesfile attribute of the <fileset>
element that is nested inside a <delete> task
3) Add a includeEmptyDirs="true" attribute to the
<delete> to insure empty directories are deleted.

In summary, try the following

<delete includeEmptyDirs="true">
   <fileset dir="${basedir}"
includesfile="${delete_list.file}"/>
</delete>

Hope this helps
