Assuming no use of AntContrib, you can pass the name of a property to the Macrodef, which it
would set.  This property could then be used in an Ant condition.  I'd give in and use AntContrib
though, since it gives you an <if> task.

Subject: Macrodef and If

I'd like to do something like:


    <macrodef name="mymacrodef">

Within the macrodef, there would be places it would return true and other places it returns
false.  I want the solution to be wholly 
in Ant (no Java, Groovy, external file use, etc.).

Is it possible?  If so, can you show an example of how the mymacrodef would be coded?
