ant - a Java based make tool.
ant [OPTIONS] [TARGET [TARGET2 [TARGET3] ...]]
Like make ant is a tool by which projects can be build. But unlike it, ant is based on Java which means it will run on every platform for which a Java Virtual Machine is available. This makes it a great tool for building Java software. By default it takes information from build.xml which describes the targets. -help, -h print help on the command line options -projecthelp, -p print project help information -version print the version information -diagnostics print information that might be helpful to diagnose or report problems -quiet, -q be extra quiet -verbose, -v be extra verbose -debug, -d print debugging information -emacs, -e produce logging information without adornments -lib <path> specifies a path to search for jars and classes -logfile <file> use the given file to output log to -logger <classname> use the given class to perform loggin -listener <classname> add an instance of the given class as a project listener -buildfile, -file, -f <file> use the given buildfile instead of the default build.xml file. This is the ant equivalent of Makefile -D<property>=<value> use value for the given property -propertyfile <name> load all properties from file with -D properties taking precedence -inputhandler <class> the class which will handle input requests -nice <number> A niceness value for the main thread: 1 (lowest) to 10 (highest); 5 is the default
