Subject extracting revision number using ant-contrib regexp
Date Fri, 18 Apr 2008 16:02:22 GMT

I'm using ant-contrib's propertyregex task to try to extract a revision
number from the repository without making any changes to a sandbox, so svn
up is no good...

I'm using this for the regexp attribute to parse the output of svn info:

regexp="Path: ([^\.]*)\n                                                                 
     URL: ([^\.]*)\n                                                                     
     Repository Root: ([^\.]*)\n                                                         
     Repository UUID: ([^\.]*)\n                                                         
     Revision: ([^\.]*)\n                                                                
     Node Kind: ([^\.]*)\n                                                               
     Last Changed Author: ([^\.]*)\n                                                     
     Last Changed Rev: ([^\.]*)\n                                                        
     Last Changed Date: ([^\.]*)\n"

now just doing select="\5" should get the revision number but all I get
returned is "${rev}" the name of the  property I am storing it in, not the

Is my regexp wrong?
