Subject RE: Tar Task
Date Thu, 15 Oct 2009 19:34:07 GMT

Thanks Scott

 

So I run the tar target each time regardless of whether any files have changed or not.  Is
the Tar task smart enough to detect that if there were no changes, there's nothing to do?
Apparently it is. 

 

C:\MyCVS\src\>ant tar
Buildfile: build.xml

tar:
      [tar] Nothing to do: C:\MyCVS\src\dist\ShellScripts.tar is up to date.

 

BUILD SUCCESSFUL
Total time: 0 seconds

my current target below. I don't want to delete my dist folder each time and I don't see any
options in the help section to overwrite the previous version of ShellScripts.tar.
