Subject Re: Bug in the "glob" file mapper?
Date Fri, 13 Aug 2004 21:20:07 GMT
Should not you use:

<mkdir dir="${dest}/internal"/>
<copy todir="${dest}/internal" flatten="true">
  <fileset dir="${source}" includes="**/ant.jar"/>

and "from" can "contain at most one '*'", which implies to me that they can legitimately have
zero stars. In this particular case the fileset defined selects just one file, ant.jar, which
is what I want to copy to a different directory. The problem is that I don't know (in the
Ant script) the exact path to the ant.jar so I'm using "**/ant.jar":

Because the Ant script is itself generated (generically) such that the copy "todir" attribute
is fixed as "${dest}" I can't simply set that to "${dest}/internal" and use a flatten mapper
which is what I'd otherwise do.

the regexp mapper would do this?
