Subject Re: <echo file="foo"> goes to stdout as well

Hmm... I'm still not getting that behaviour, but then I'm on straight WinNT
here at work.  I didn't get the chance to try things last night at home
with my Linux/Win98 box.  Anyone else able to reproduce this behaviour?

My only other suggestion is to get the latest CVS and make sure you aren't
picking up an older version of ant.jar.  Sorry I can't be of any more help
just now.

  <target name="testecho">
    <echo file="foofile">This is the initial text.
    <echo file="foofile" append="yes">This is additional text.

Results in:
[binky] ant -f test.xml testecho
Buildfile: test.xml
This is the initial text.

This is additional text.

Total time: 1 second
[binky] cat foofile
This is the initial text.

I'm running on NT under MKS, with Ant version 1.2alpha3 compiled on
September 29 2000.
