Subject Re: Insert a file into another at given point (not necessary at the end)

David-

Have you looked at ReplaceRegExp Task from optional.jar..here is the doc
http://ant.apache.org/manual/OptionalTasks/replaceregexp.html
You would be able to replace match with replace for all instances where match condition is
met
  <replaceregexp file="${src}/build.properties"
                         match="OldProperty=(.*)"
                         replace="NewProperty=\1"
                         byline="true"/>
replaces occurrences of the property name "OldProperty" with "NewProperty" in a properties
file, preserving the existing value, in the file ${src}/build.properties

Is this what you're looking for ?

what about to insert something in the middle of another file, I cant define such place for
example via regular expression, but I don't know if there is any task for doing that.
