Subject Printing out patternsets and/or filesets
Date Tue, 18 Apr 2006 21:50:44 GMT


I need to know if there is a way to print out a patternset or fileset
for debugging.  Likesay if I've specified a patternset and given it an

<patternset id=thestuff>

            <include name="thing1"/>

            <include name="thing2"/>



Or for a fileset, similar situation.

<fileset dir="/theplace" id="thefiles">

            <patternset refid="thestuff"/>



How do I go about displaying the list of what the fileset resolved to?
Or the contents of the patternset?    (I mean other than debug or
verbose, I'd like to just see this in the output).  

Just to rule it out, I tried the obvious <echo message="the files are
${thefiles}"/> which of course didn't work.


Help appreciated.
