Subject Re: How to refer PATH environment variable in <exec> Ant task
Date Sat, 02 Dec 2006 21:08:02 GMT
Perhaps we could add an attribute to property
to force the env names to be uppercasized:
<property environment="env" upcase="yes"/>

so <echo>${env.PATH}</echo>
will always give the correct value
