Subject Ant script "dry-run" testing
Date Wed, 04 Dec 2002 20:35:08 GMT
Is it possible to have Ant do a 'dry-run' of a script without actually
executing the target actions, but just to see what targets would be run,
maybe with value substitutions?

This was possible with some versions/variations of 'make'.  The '-n'
or '--dry-run' options allow 'make' to tell what it would do without
really doing it, so some debugging could be done without harm to
existing files, etc.

I didn't see anything like this in the Ant manual.

Is this possible?  Will it be part of Ant 2?
