This week's book giveaways are in the iOS and Features new in Java 8 forums. We're giving away four copies each of Barcodes with iOS: Bringing together the digital and physical worlds and Core Java for the Impatient and have the authors on-line! See this thread and this one for details.
1) ClearCase repository is on a Windows 2003 server, but has unix line endings. The drive (and files) are read-only, so I have to copy the files in order to do the build. 2) Using xcopy - changes the permissions from r--r--r-- to rwx--------- and puts ^M at the end of every line which causes the *.sh files to not run. 3) Using cygwin cp - maintains the lack of ^Ms but leaves the copied files as r--r--r-- (I run run chmod 777 ./* after the cp copy)
I would like to use ant for the copy. I'm guessing that it would behave more like xcopy since it would be running on windows. 1) Maybe use the FixCRLF afterwards... Would this work on windows/cygwin? 2) Maybe use the Chmod task afterwards ... Would this work on windows/cygwin?
Does anyone here have any experience with similar issues?

Marilyn, I haven't done this particular thing, but I still have some thoughts .
1) FixCRLF should definitely work - that's what it's designed to do. You get to specify what format you want the result to be in, which renders the underlying operating system irrelevant. 2) Chmod is more interesting. The task calls the underlying chmod command which Windows doesn't have as such while Cygwin does. I think the best thing to do would be to try it and see what happens.
