Subject long command lines from execon with parallel=true
Date Mon, 22 Jan 2001 20:14:30 GMT
Under ant 1.2 and ant 1.3 I'm using the execon task to fire off a build of
a pile of JSPs (under WinNT). this results in a very long command line
that will not execute. 

I've made a local change to the 1.2 sources to add a 'batch' attribute to
the execon task (telling it how many source files to pass per batch
execution of the command). Should I submit this patch?

Alternatively, is there another way to accomplish the same means with
the normal functionality?
