Subject RE: Re: How can I capture a file's date to a property?
Date Mon, 23 Jul 2007 15:17:03 GMT
There are a number of problems with the example task:

<fileutil file="foobar.txt" property="moddate">
   <lastmodified format="...">
 </fileutils>

- The opening and closing tag names do not match ("fileutil" vs. "fileutils").
- The <lastmodified> tag is not closed.

Even after correcting for these, I get an error message from ant when I run the target:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
<taskdef resource="ise/antelope/tasks/antelope.taskdefs"/>

<target name="test">
  <fileutil file="build.xml" property="date.last.modified">
    <lastmodified format="yyyy-mm-dd" />
  </fileutil>
  <echo>${date.last.modified}</echo>
</target>

ts.xml:6: No public execute() in class ise.antelope.tasks.typedefs.file.FileLength
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have dowloaded and installed AntelopeTasks_3.4.2.jar in the lib directory of my 
%ANT__HOME% directory.

Can anyone offer a useful analysis of the error message and suggest a fix?

Thanks.

Hi Gilbert,

Your example looks just right.  That should work with no problems.
