Subject Re: Eclipse @category for Ant?
Date Thu, 07 Jul 2011 16:28:32 GMT
Hi Steve,

Given that @category (as described at the URL you gave) is a javadoc
tag, and Ant scripts are XML files and don't contain javadocs, I doubt

I dare say some similar functionality could maybe be added to
eclipse's Outline support for XML files, perhaps using a specific
format of comment which you could then include in your build scripts.
But you'd be better off asking on an eclipse mailing list rather than
here.  Last I checked, there's no Ant task for populating the Outline
panel of an IDE during a build ;-)
