Subject how to exec with a set of files as multiple arguments?
Date Fri, 17 Feb 2006 13:13:41 GMT

I need to execute a command with a large, not known in advance,
number of files, each listed as separate argument.  I have been
unable to figure out how to do this with Ant.

Roughly speaking, I want sth. like

	<exec executable="cat">
	    <include name="*.java"/>

except that I don't know how to convert the fileset into a set
of <arg>s.

	<path id="foo">
	  <fileset dir="...">
	    <include name="*.java"/>
	<exec executable="cat">
	  <arg pathref="foo"/>

gives the files combined together in one argument...
