We have been using diffrent compiler for our c/c++ compilation use to write long make files
But I Think in ANT we only write XML for compiling the c/c++ codes really intresting
Can you please let me know the link where I can download the ANT for compiling my c/c++ codes using ANT
Thanks in Advance

First, I want to make sure that you understand what Ant is. Ant is a build tool, so you will still need a seperate compiler. Check out Ant's related projects page for a version that will work with C/C++ compilers.

I checked out the link and I saw a project called AntContrib. I downloaded it, but found nothing about C/C++ compile. I was wondering if it would be possible to write a build.xml file that uses the already existing exec task to do C compiles. It seems like you would be able to use exec combined with env tag to set up the build environment. This is just a theory. I've never actually tried it. Please someone whack me over the head if I am being stupid.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
