Trigger the build process to terminate???


One of the steps in my project involves a call to an external program ( The Ant Java make-tool ).

Ant does not return a return code on success/failure, but I am able to check the LASTSTEP_OUTPUT macro to check for a known failure string.

I'd like to trigger an error in this case and force the build process to recognise the build failure - and then proceed to execute my failure steps.

Is this possible? I realise one way of doing this is to record the failure in a macro and have EVERY step execute a conditional check to see if an error has occurred and then define some tidy-up steps which execute ONLY if a build error occurred, but there must be a better solution?

Any help would be much appreciated, thanks,
