Subject RE: Add html tags in a text file
Date Thu, 11 May 2006 16:54:58 GMT
I would suggest creating a template html file like the following

template_html.txt
================
<html><body>
_CONTENTS_
</body></html>

Then use <loadfile> to load the contents of the text file into a property and <copy>
and <replace> to create the new html file. Something like...

<loadfile property="contents" srcfile="report.output"/>
<copy file="template_html.txt" tofile="report.outut.html"/>
<replace file="report.output.html" token="_CONTENTS_" value="${contents}"/>

If you have a directory full of these text files, you could make all the values above properties
and loop over the files using ant-contrib's <foreach> task (google "ant-contrib").
