I need to set a property to be a higher-level directory. For example in a Makefile:
ROOT_DIR= $(shell $(PWD) | $(SED) -e "s/myproj.*/myproj/")
Will set ROOT_DIR to the parent directory named 'myproj', no matter how many levels up it is.
I can't figure out a way to do this in Ant. I suppose it is possible to write it as a shell script and return the value back to Ant, but I am not sure how to even do that. Thanks in advance.
