Subject Suppressing error messages from chmod and chgrp tasks
Date Mon, 20 Aug 2007 15:10:51 GMT
Hi all,

I am using Ant 1.7.0, JDK 5.0_04, Gentoo Linux.

It would be very useful for me if it was possible to suppress 
error/diagnostic messages from chmod, chgrp and chown tasks. In the end 
of my build I change the permissions of a number of temporary and output 
files. For many of them the changes are not possible so the log gets 
filled with a lot of error messages from chmod and chgrp.

All these three UNIX commands support the -f ("force option") that do 
exactly that. I wonder what you think about adding support to this 
option in the Ant tasks (adding a "force" parameter?!). Currently, there 
is only a "verbose" parameter.

If you know any workaround other than disabling the recording to the log 
file, please let me know.

Thanks in advance,

DIEGO Moreira da Rosa
