echo ${Prop1}${Prop2} to yourfile.txt
then use a filterchain when loading
the contents of that file in a new property =

<loadfile property="bla" srcfile="C:/yourfile.txt">
                <replacestring from="//" to="/" />


gives you >>> /my/folder/my other folder/

Good Morning
Is it possible to to some string operations on a property?

Prop1: "/my/folder/"
Prop2: "/my other folder/"

Now I log:
File moved to: ${Prop1}${Prop2}

This logs:
"/my/folder//my other folder/"

The double slash is not nice... But I need all the slashes in Prop1 and
Prop2... So I need to do a substring action on one of the properties.
I took a look at the documentation of ANT but did not found some string
operations or stuff like this. I think there is such things, may be I
looked at the wrong place. If so, please tell me where I have to look
next time ;)

Thank you
