Hello All!

I'm using Ant under OS/2 and Java 1.1.8 and I've found a bug in 
org\apache\tools\ant\taskdefs\ related to launching commands under OS/2 (according
the last version of I've downloaded from the cvs a couple of days ago). The matter
the Execute.sellLauncher variable is initialized with a WinNTCommandLauncher object when ''

is OS/2, but the synthax of 'cd' (change dir) command used to change the current drive along
the current directory ('/d' command line switch) is not valid under OS/2 and causes the system

error message. So, execution of any program/command via the command line shell is not possible.

I've fixed this bug by writting the OS2CommandLauncher class and correcting the initialization
the shellLauncher, but I'm not familiar with cvs and I don't know what format of diff-files
is used 
by Ant developers (I have only GDIFF format utility) and where should I put my diff. Can anybody

give me a tip?

P.S. I've found that the <description> datatype under the scope the of the <project>
tag does not 
work correctly, i.e. in the case of multiline description defined in buildfile only the last
is shown by the '-projecthelp' Ant's command line switch. Does this bug present under other

OSes/Java versions?
