Subject Exec basedir problem
Date Thu, 10 Aug 2000 05:03:18 GMT
I'm running an exec task (jidl) to build the appropriate java code for my 
application from idl. I'm seeing
a problem with the basedir being passed in and how it is interpreted on 
WinNT.   The basedir
being passed in is correct and of the form: e:\project.   When an argument 
is created from this
basedir and passed as an argument to exec the backslashes are removed 
resulting in an incorrect
argument (verified by the -verbose flag).   How can I avoid this happening, 
that is interpreting the backslash
as an explicit quote of the next character.
