Date Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 GMT

   The following issue has been resolved as FIXED.

Well I finally committed this.  Please check to make sure it works.  It works for me on WinXP,
but I have no Win9x computers to test it on.

I did not apply the patch chunk that included "%ANT_HOME%\nul" because that broke it for me.

If possible, try testing where forrest is on a different drive than the project you are building.
 I added /d to the 'cd' commands so this would work in WinXP.  I don't know how Win9x handles

Environment: Windows 98 / JDK 1.4.1

There are a lot of NT specifics in Forrest batch files (@setlocal, %~dp0...) that prevent
them to be run on Windows 98.

It would be nice to have this compatibility :-)

The most difficult part may be to emulate the setpwdvar.bat for NT. Here is a code snippet
that does the trick :

@echo off
echo @prompt set PWD=$p$_ > _temp_A.bat
%comspec% /e:2048 /c _temp_A.bat > _temp_B.bat
call _temp_B.bat
del _temp_?.bat

Hope this helps.
