In 15.3.1, the last paragraph (after the code example)
in the "Checking for the existence of a file or directory"
sub-section notes, in part:

"The _type_ attribute determines whether the file should
be a _file_ or a _directory_ specifically."

However, the Ant manual specifies that the possible
values of the _type_ attribute are _file_ or _dir_
(i.e. not _directory_):

oops. you are correct again. Thanks. I hope you were not too inconvenienced by
the error.

(I could patch ant1.6 to fix the defect in the source, but its probably fairer
to update our book's errata instead)
