hi, thanks for the book; I really longed for this topic to be treated in a good book!

Chapter 3 listing 3.3: I really don't get the part about the Debug property with the Condition about Delete:

<Debug Condition="'$(Delete)'==''">false</Debug>

What does Delete refer to here? What does any Delete property (that I can't find) have to do with a Debug property? If it is only used for input param from the console, why is it called Delete?

Obviously I'm missing something here, thanks a lot for your answer in advance.

Re: Chapter 3 - Debug Condition
Ok, Delete is just a param name for input. I have to say that to me it was very confusing; not knowing anything about MSBuild.

Re: Chapter 3 - Debug Condition
It looks that the parameter name is wrong: it should be Debug instead.
