Subject Re: Problems when building with Ant...
Date Mon, 31 Jan 2005 09:25:23 GMT
Hi,

Because ANT doesn't support C/C++ compilation, etc.  "out of the box" you
also need the following extensions:
      ant-contrib
      cpptasks

These dependencies, and where to get them, are listed in the documentation
within the build.xml file, and also our ANT build documentation.

Regards,
Adrian
