Subject Re: Malformed \uxxxx encoding in propertyfile task - \u in propertyfile
Date Wed, 12 Jun 2013 00:55:21 GMT
Hello Michael,

As far as I know, you can't edit arbitrary files with the propertyfile task. The files have
to be valid Java property files. For the restrictions on property files, see java.util.Properties
load(Reader reader) at http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/api/
