Subject RE: How to echo the empty directories of a fileset ?
Date Thu, 13 May 2010 18:07:29 GMT
Isn't there a new task named resourcecount. Maybe you could use this in conjunction with a
test and if the resourcecount is 0 then echo it is empty. Or am I missing what you are trying
to do?

Subject: How to echo the empty directories of a fileset ?

Hello. If I do something like this:

	<copy todir="${destination.dir}" verbose="true" >
		<fileset dir="${projects.dir}/" >
			<include name="*" />

and projects.dir has some empty directories, then those directories
will be copied to destination.dir .
Is this normal behavior? (It seems strange to me that a fileset would
contain empty directories)
And if that's the case, how can I echo the empty directories of a
fileset? I am familiar with this:

	<pathconvert refid="my.fileset" property="my.files.list"> pathsep=","/>
	<echo message="${my.files.list}"/>

But it only prints the files of the fileset, not the directories.
