Oh my! Sorry!! It's been 3 years since I've coded in Java. I've been
developing in .Net since then and I have a need for Ant's functionality.
Most of it came back, the obvious has not.

I'm very sorry for wasting your time.

Thanks!

uh, it's part of the Java property file spec that backslashes must be
escaped:

dir.src=C:\\Temp\\compare_cmp
dir.dest=C:\\Work\\Dev\\projects\\Installer\\code\\Installer_c1.0.latest
\\cmp
