Subject Re: <exec> task not accepting relative path
Date Sat, 31 Oct 2009 19:06:43 GMT

Hi,

Thanks for your reply.

I am not able to give relative path for Capital folder in filset.

This is not working..

<fileset dir="**/Capital/" includers="*.txt"/>

i tried various patterns for relative path.. because the Capital folder will
reside in any subdirectory. So I dont know the specific path to give. Hence
providing the relative path. But its not getting resolved..

Is there any way to do that?

Thanks
