Subject Having trouble using replaceregexp with DIR locations as string to replace
Date Tue, 25 Oct 2011 08:46:18 GMT

i am having trouble in doing this..
there is 1 batch file(MY_FILE) with this line in it..

*set TEST_DIR=C:\temp\dir1*

i just want to set some new value to *TEST_DIR*

but when i use <replaceregexp> in my ant escapes forward
slashes.. and gives this result

*set TEST_DIR=C:homedir2*

but correct value should be as below

*set TEST_DIR=C:\home\dir2*

.. i am using this command in my ant build file..

<property name="MY_FILE" location="${MT_BATCH_FILE_LOCATION}\myfile.bat" />
<replaceregexp file="${MY_FILE}" match="TEST_DIR=C:\\temp\\dir1"
replace="TEST_DIR=C:\home\dir2" byline="true" />
