Yes, there is an option to execute_process() that will return the output as
a string.  See the CMake documentation.

You can use the STRING(REGEX REPLACE...) command in conjunction with ( ) to
extract strings.  See the FAQ below as well as the CMake manual for
details.  You should be able to find plenty of examples using Google.
Beware escaping regular expressions in CMake is a bit weird.
