In the Ant Manual(, in the 
description of the environment attribute of the property 
task(, it says that the 
environment variables *will* be case-sensitive, even if in the underlying 
system it isn´t, so the variable inside ant will be ${env.Path} and not 
${env.PATH} in win2k.

That´s not true, if you define the variable as 'PATH', ${env.Path} won´t 
work, but ${env.PATH} will. I think that last phrase should be rephrased 

it will be ${env.Path} not ${env.PATH} on Windows 2000.


if you defined your varibale as 'Path' in Windows 2000, it will be 

I think it will be clearer this way.
