What is $folder on the Ant build file?

What is $folder on the Ant build file?

Postby jasondavis on Thu Dec 15, 2011 5:03 pm

I am trying to add PHP's Phing build system which is just like Java's ANT except is has some additional features and it's all in PHP.

SO looking at the current Ant build file's working_dir setting

Code: Select all
"working_dir": "${project_path:${folder}}",

I have read all the documentation available and it says that $project_path is the project folder path. I did not see the $folder that is shown in the ant file above listed anywhere, can someone tell me what the $folder variable holds or is that a user set variable somewhere?

With Phing you generally set up a build folder inside your project folder so I would most likely need something like

Code: Select all
"working_dir": "${project_path}/build",

could you clarify that I have added the /build correctly to the snippet above? Thanks
