Running external tool from IDE

Hi guys and ladies,
  I've been searching for a while already but didn't find anything - I'd like to run external tool based on currently edited file. Something, where I would be able to pass parameters like currently edited file name etc.

Did I overlook it in IDEA 8.1 or is it missing?

Thanks for any replies,
     Aleq

P.S.: My usage is to run ANT script which generates(refreshes) other source files.
Example:
  source file cfg/myFolder/myDefinition.xml
  command: "ant screen -Dscreen=myDefinition"
