Subject Optional PVCS w/ mapped windoze drive fails
Date Thu, 06 Jun 2002 16:16:07 GMT
Apologies if this has been covered, but I found only one reference in the
archives and it was a bug report marked as closed due to being a duplicate.

The PVCS Optional task in Ant 1.5 beta 2 fails if the directory tree into
which you are doing a get doesn't already exist when you are launching PVCS
PCLI via a mapped network drive. The resulting errors are[ get: error,
"<some dir>" is not a directory.] A bug report number: 4346 shows changes to
the createFolders() method that appear to handle this problem (I haven't
fully testing it yet...). Unfortunately, it seems this fix has not been
applied to the latest beta code. I noticed a "linestart" property that might
allow a workaround, but I have not had any success using a variety of
"linestart" characters (e.g. linestart="&quot;R:" - ['R' is the mapped drive
letter] in the build.xml PVCS target).

Can the above mentioned fix be added to the code?
Is there some other workaround for using this task with mapped windoze
