Possible to Map File Name Substrings from Disk Operation to XML Profile?

Hi all,

I have a scenario where I need to read a bunch of files from a disk location and upload them to Salesforce CRM Content. In order to properly link the documents to objects in our SF Org, I need to extract some info from the file name (the files in the disk location all abide by a specific naming convention). Is there a way to map substrings of the file name to an XML profile?

Example
===============
If the file name is "EntityID_DocType_12062012.pdf", I'd want to map the EntityID, DocType, and Date fragments different elements in the profile, respectively.

All thoughts are appreciated. Thank you!
