Subject RE: delete error

It's a known feature.  To delete symbolic links, one must shell out to 
the OS to remove it.  I don't know about 1.4 and whether it deletes the 
link instead of the target.

Subject: delete error

has anyone else noticed that when you do a "delete" operation, it 
follows symbolic
links?  This is really bad, especially for those of use using RCS 
SCCS, when
we want to delete a checked out build structure automatically.  Is this 
fixed in Ant1.4?
