Every so often as we work through converting the Visual Studio builds over to MSBuild we stumble across a little quirk or entertaining bit of MSBuild XML that makes the team scratch its head. Dan sent this one around to the team a couple of weeks ago, and it's related to our previous post about unqualified metadata.
How many x's does the following MSBuild XML produce?
To make it easier we'll make the question multiple choice. Is the answer:
a) 0b) 2c) 3d) 9
No cheating! You can't run this through MSBuild to find out. Take a guess first, then try it out.
