Subject [PATCH] command-line arguments
Date Tue, 10 Apr 2001 13:42:18 GMT
attached please find a diff for command-line parameters.  basically,
anything following a solitary hyphen on the command-line is set as a
property of the form 'commandArg1', 'commandArg2' etc. and can be accessed
as a regular property within a build xml file.

i made the changes to (1.3 sources).

sample call:

ant.bat -buildfile aoeu.xml -debug -Dinstalldir=c:\tmp - arg1 arg2 arg3

so ${commandArg1} becomes 'arg1', ${commandArg2} becomes 'arg2'.

since a solitary hyphen was not in use in the past (and would generate an
error as an unrecognized option), i don't think this should break existing
calls to ant.

my apologies for not following the accepted methodology for patch
submission.  am new here.
