Subject executing a "clean" task
Date Mon, 06 Jan 2003 15:37:35 GMT

I have written a very small build.xml script for ant modeled after the 
example in the "Using Ant" docs on the Jakarta web site.  The example I 
followed includes a task named "clean", but neither the default task nor 
any of its dependencies depend on "clean".  Therefore, it will never be 

Is there a way to get a specific task to execute by passing in some 
commandline parameter?  Essentially I have modified the "clean" task in 
my build.xml to delete the build directory, but I'm not sure how to get 
"clean" to execute instead of "dist", which is my default task.  I 
didn't see mention of this in the docs, or I missed it, only how to set 
property names/values from the command line with -D.
