Subject Reading properties
Date Tue, 10 Jan 2006 00:45:51 GMT
hi all,

One of my property file has key/values such as

path=something\usb

When I read this property like

<property file="${build_dir}/myvalues.properties" />

ant throws an exception, C:\mydir\build.xml:35: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Malformed
\uxxxx encoding. 


I understand that it interprets \u in usb as unicode char. how to over come this?

I tried to use a filter to change "\" to "\\"

<filter token="\" value="\\"/>
<copy file="${build_dir}/myvalues.properties" filtering="true" tofile="${build_dir}/myvalues1.properties"
overwrite="true">
</copy>

It does not seem to work. What could be the problem ?
