    Hi, all:
    I would like to dynamically get the name of a folder where I execute ant
    from. For instance, if I launch ant in c:\temp, I would like to get c:\temp
    via an ant pre-defined property or task. In GNU make, there is a system
    variable of ${CURDIR}which holds this value. Is there any property
    associated with this?
    Secondly, could I make any substitution to a string. For instance, I would
    like to get rid of c:\temp from a string of c:\temp\com\mycompany\servlet\.
    Again, in GNU, there are various functions to substitute a string.
    Your help will be highly appreciated,
Well if your 'basedir' property is set to '.' then it will hold the
directory where the script was run from.

There is also a pathconvert task that will allow you to make
substitutions to the path string

Hope this helps
