How Can I Write the Build Number to a Property File?

I would like to show the application build number on the about box for the application.
I know that Ant gets the build number as a property.  I tried
using the PropertyFile task, but it does not appear to be installed.  Before
I spend a day pulling something together to make this work, I thought I would ask.  It seems
like this is something that others would already be doing.

I chose to create a property file that contained only the build version and number.  Then it was easy (relatively speaking) to write some code to overwrite the file at the start of the build.  It is a cumbersome environment to write code in. :-)
