When trying to use Ant-Contrib for loops today, I ran into the error below:
C:\Projects\...\ant\build.xml:200: Problem: failed to create task or type for
Cause: The name is undefined.
Action: Check the spelling.
Action: Check that any custom tasks/types have been declared.
Action: Check that any <presetdef>/<macrodef> declarations have taken place.
To fix the error I had to update the Ant-Contrib taskdef resource path from using "antcontrib.properties" to use "antlib.xml" in my Ant build file.
// Remove this line
// And replace with this one
According to the Ant-Contrib manual (found in [Ant-Contrib install dir]/docs/manual/index.html) you need to use the "antcontrib.properties" file when you want Ant-Contrib to run with Ant Version 1.5. They even place a warning saying:
Keep in mind that some tasks will not be available to you , such as the <for> task
The confusing part is that on the project page they tell you to use the "antcontrib.properties" file.
Seems like people have caught on to the need of being able to create and manage themes in Eclipse. The Eclipse Color Theme plugin does this very well and also works like a charm with FDT.
Unfortunately this is still only changing colors of the text editor and not the whole IDE.
Lately I've been looking into optimizing SWF in both speed in file size, below is a list of interesting projects I came across.

I'm sure there are some projects I missed... Please do let me know about any good ones I omitted.
A quick step by step guide to installing ANT-contrib for Eclipse (on Windows).
- Download ANT-contrib: http://sourceforge.net/projects/ant-contrib/files/
- Extract the zip to your harddrive, I extracted it to C:/ant-contrib/
- Include ANT-contrib in your ANT build file, so you don't have to set it up every time you create a new project. (See XML below)
- All done!
Additional XML in ANT build script:
<pathelement location="[full path to ant-contrib jar]"/>
A colleague pointed WinFF out to me, a nice GUI for FFmpeg. No more worrying about command line options, long life laziness!
PS: No need to download FFmpeg, it comes packaged with WinFF.
I'd love to have some time to mess around with a Phidgets or Arduino board, it looks like a lot of fun! Using Flash to control something analog/physical!
Just thought this was funny.
Welcome the robots, just click the link using FF and say hello to the robots
You can exclude files and/or packages from Flex PMD by creating your own rule set, use the "exclude-pattern" tag to exclude files.
EncyclopÃ©die, ou dictionnaire raisonnÃ© des sciences, des arts et des mÃ©tiers (English: Encyclopedia, or a systematic dictionary of the sciences, arts, and crafts) was a general encyclopedia published in France between 1751 and 1772, with later supplements and revisions in 1772, 1777 and 1780 and numerous foreign editions and later derivatives.
