Actually I did use Ant for doing some perl stuff since I need to work with java for other projects, but Ant has its own problems (e.g., most declaritive using xml, can't really program it, for example, doing some conditional or looping is pretty hard, or too verbose to be elegant). I'm looking for something that go beyond simple copy/move, for example, easy cvs, tar/zip integration, global replace, target dependencies, etc., basically something that does what Ant does but also allows scripting. (I think the Ant community was/is considering adding some scripting capabilities, say via jython.)
Thanks again for all the inputs.
