Thanks Brian,

Of course now it seems I oversimplified my example. :-) I want to capture current git branch using this:

local GIT_BRANCH = [ SHELL "git rev-parse --abbrev-ref HEAD" ] ;
echo "before$(GIT_BRANCH)after" ;

It seems my shell fu skills are lacking, a quick Google turns up "tr" or "awk" examples.. Any suggestions what would be the cleanest way to achieve my goal?
