A novice at using Ant, I am attempting to use the "ant" command, and instead am getting a list of java options one would get when using the "java" command with no options. In other words, when I enter "ant" and return, the result is the same as if I enter "java" and return. Any idea what might be causing this apparent mixup between ant and java? I have tried quite a few different things, and am stumped. I even moved the build.xml file etc into the apache\bin directory, and am getting the same result. Your help is much appreciated.

Soon after posting my message yesterday, I discovered that ant.bat was inserting a "\" in one of the filepaths that I was not expecting; this conflicted with one of my filepaths in an environment variable I created, so the filepath ant used had a "\\".
