Subject Re: # character causes problem parsing -lib paths
Date Wed, 19 Apr 2006 10:51:38 GMT
I have just checked.
This is a problem - the ant launcher code does some
conversion of file names to URLs. The '#' character
is not converted
The only work-around (at the moment) is to use symbolic links.
I have made a change to ant SVN to fix this.
