Subject Re: suggestion about javac command and auto-compilation
Date Sun, 09 Sep 2001 14:42:35 GMT
Talk about twisted logic!

You've chosen to ignore the standard to
avoid a few extra characters in the
'cd' command, and then you want the
ant to compensate...

Here's a different approach - put the
'com/y' back. Then, if you really don't
want to type 'com/y' all the time,
on unix define a symbolic link down
to the level of interest, and use that
when you 'cd'. On NT, 'share' the directory
where you want to start working, map
a drive letter to it, then switch to
that mapped drive.
