AW: iterate through files

AW: iterate through files

2007-08-03       - By Jan.Materne@(protected)

* A <fileset><modified/> will filter out all files already processed.
* A <fileset> will be scanned if task is executed.
* I dont know <while> taskcontainer which could provide something like
      <condidion><notempty><fileset id="fs"...>
          <dosomething><fileset refid="fs"

Not the right solution, but maybe a step...

<antcontrib:for begin="1" end="50" param="notused">
   <antcontrib:for param="file">
       <fileset ...>
           <echo>processing @{file} ... </echo>

>(Running Ant from a bat file triggered by a directory watching app.)
>Is is possible to iterate through a directory of files (that
>can have files
>added while the task is running), one at a time before running
>the task again?
>In other words I want to grab a single file parse it with an
>Ant task, delete
>it, and then start all over again till the directory is empty.
>Each run through
>the task takes about 5 seconds and don't want any collision
>between files (there
>are multiple XSLT tasks ending in one of 2 BCP inserts into a
>SQL Server). Using
>a scheduled task is a last resort.
>Any help will be greatly appreciated.
