Subject Re: RE: how do i use propertyfile on windows?
Date Mon, 12 Feb 2007 22:47:16 GMT
Hello teknokrat,

the fact that c:/ is written as c\:/ in a property file belongs to the spec of properties
in Java. The : character is always escaped in property files.

Do you use the property file that you generate using <propertyfile/> also with a Java
program, or is it consumed by something else, such as a shell script ?

Regards,

Antoine
