There is a propertyregex task in ant-contrib that you can use to extract
part of a property's value to a new property.

Subject: Re: Need to find current directory (not entire path)


Wow, completely overlooked basename, but that only really solves this
specific problem. I was really hoping to find out if there was a way to
parse a string or property. Let's say I'm using svn update and it
returns 'At revision 100'. I put that string into a property. 

Now, how do I extract just the 100?

Is there any built in functionality that will solve this, or do I have
to make my own task to handle something like this?
