I have a ant script,that reads a paramterized file(abc.xml) and does filtering and produces a output file(xyz.xml)...depending upon the values setup in the properties file.
Now,my problem is if i put a exclamation mark in the properties file as some value,it is automatically ignored by the script.
So, abcd! becomes abcd ... so is "!" a special character,if yes how to excape it then??
