Subject String manipulation (parsing / padding)
Date Mon, 04 May 2009 15:27:15 GMT


I am looking for a way in Ant to parse a string as well as create a new
string that is zero-padded.  Does Ant have any built-in tasks/functions
for manipulating strings?


My input will be a version string in the format of x.y.z.  I need to
take that input and create a string that is formatted to exactly 6
characters, with each individual component of the original string
resulting in 2 characters in the result string (zero left padding if the
number is only one character).  So if my original string is 1.2.3, my
resulting string will be 010203.


I have been using NAnt lately and it has some built in functions for
doing this sort of string manipulation.  Now I need to implement the
same logic in Ant scripts.  I have been looking for something similar in
Ant, but I have yet to come across anything.  I am using Ant v1.7.1.
