Subject: how to make replace task not expand Java properties like
${user.home}

Hi.  I'm writing an ant task to replace

APPBASE

with

${user.home}/public_html


The command

<replace file="server.xml" token="APPBASE"
value="${user.home}/public_html"/>

does replaces APPBASE, but it expands ${user.home}.  I don't want it to
expand this variable as I will be copying server.xml to another
location, and the expanded value of the Java property is different.

(BTW, I'm creating several different server.xml, and each one has a
totally different value for APPBASE.)

So I tried

<replace file="server.xml" token="APPBASE"
value="\$\{user.home\}/public_html"/>

but the output is has the back slashes in it.

Thanks.
