Ant TODO gets some love

Updated: I’ve added another item to the implemented features below…

Yonks ago I spent an afternoon hacking together a TODO task for Apache Ant; the result of which was Ant TODO.

Now, I hadn’t touched it in a while until a user emailed me asking for some help and some nifty new features. Having returned home from a weekend away with a few hours spare I decided to implement the following:

  1. allow for setting of results to an Ant property, instead of to a file or so-on
  2. support a custom delimiter string for each item
  3. call Ant TODO after JAR’ing Ant TODO (chicken, meet egg)
  4. numerous housekeeping tasks, such as a little refactoring and better test data
