Subject using * in arg of exec task
Date Mon, 12 Feb 2007 10:08:04 GMT

Hi all,

I would like to call a helper script in my ant-task, but somehow I dont't
get it running.

I would like to call
"myCript /path/to/classes/Class*.class

I have defined this exec task:

<exec executable="myCrypt" dir=".">
<arg line="path/to/classes/Class*.class

Running the task, ant is complaining that the classes don't exist. 
I also tried to escape the '*' by \, $, and *, but nothing worked.

How do I define such a task in ant?

Thanks in advance!
