Description Martin von Gagern 2007-12-14 13:03:49 UTC
I'm trying to pass -Xlint:all to all Sun compiler versions that support it, i.e.
starting from 1.5 and theoretically for all future versions. Right now I only
can achieve this by specifying several compilerarg values, like javac1.5,
javac1.6 and so on, all with the same value. It would be nice to specify
"javac1.5+" or something like this to mean javac version 1.5 and later. Maybe
you also want limited ranges, like "javac1.5-javac1.7", but I guess once you
have two ends, the alternative of listing all versions becomes acceptable.
