Subject RE: how to detect relative or absolute path value
Date Fri, 26 Aug 2005 08:08:13 GMT
Well, I've tried location but even if the input property is an absolute
path like /usr/tmp, Ant will append basedir and create a property
/my/basedir/usr/tmp. I'm using Ant 1.6.2 on Linux.

Instead of using value, use location for the property and it should
convert it o an absolute path automatically.

Subject: how to detect relative or absolute path value

My Ant script needs to know if a property value is a relative or
absolute path in order to decide if to prepend a root path or not. Can
Ant do this without custom tasks?
