Subject Re: converting ant from a make file
Date Sat, 19 Sep 2009 20:13:44 GMT

Here's a good example of what can be done with Ant, with a very  
complete collection of example code:

About the execution of Perl: typically with Ant, you define a task  
(execution of Perl) and then define the files to include and exclude,  
the configuration settings for the task (such as properties/ 
parameters) and the output directory. Alternatively, you can just  
execute your old script (via exec), use <apply>, a <macrodef> or have  
one <exec> for each Perl invocation.

There are lots of options, but typically a dedicated task, possibly  
coded using an <apply> or <macrodef> is the way to go.

For more information on using <apply> to invoke Perl, see this article:
