Subject Re: Review Request 16739: Change --searchpath to use repeated flag instead of delimiter
Date Wed, 08 Jan 2014 22:10:03 GMT
Actually I do not understand the use case at all.
Never mind. I was just pointing out possible pitfalls on different
platforms.

I think it is ok to have platform specific delimiters: ; for windows and :
for unix-like
That would follow common practices on those platforms; although I always
shudder when (semi-)colon delimited lists are proposed.

I will probably never use this parameter because I know where the plugin is
I have an build.xml for ant that adds all the plugins my project needs.
Remove is used when I develop a plugin and do not want to do a "ant
dist-clean".
