Subject Re: AW: AW: Way to refresh properties?
Date Tue, 14 Feb 2006 18:57:20 GMT
Thanks for that info Patrick!  I had kind of worked out the theory of it
in my playing, but nice to have it confirmed.  Since my build scripts tend
to be a single target that antcalls all the others, this is valuable info
(the fact that I've managed before without it notwithstanding!)  I love
Antform by the way, I now have a nice little front end to my build
process, really cool!
