Hi

I want to know from where this build.properties is being read

e.g 1 <property file="${basedir}/../Interface/build.properties"/>


e.g 2

This make directory task is telling to make something like classes folder , but where?

<mkdir dir="${basedir}/../classes"/>

how to read those two dots?


Thanks in advance

Okay i found it

http://www.med.nyu.edu/rcr/rcr/course/unix4.html

Two dots will take me to parent directory of place where current location is

<mkdir dir="${basedir}/../classes"/>

e.g if basedir is .
then .. will take one level up

and then create directory named classes inside that directory.


thanks
