Subject Why three exec taskdefs?
Date Mon, 12 Feb 2001 14:32:46 GMT
I didn't get an answer the first time I posted this question so I thought I
would try and ask my question again.

Why does ant have three exec type taskdefs: Apply, Exec, and ExecOn? Was each
created to handled a different type of os command? If so it would be helpful to
know the author's assumptions thereby making the selection easier.

I read the user guide for these taskdefs but they don't really indicate the
justification for each.

Appreciative of any answers,
