How to process click.value before passing it to a URL?

I know that click.value will give me the value of the leftmost column in the click row, but what should I do so I can process the value before passing it to a link?

Example:
I have a table with entries on the leftmost column like this: 2-5, 4-3, 5-1, 5-2, 5-7, 7-3, 7-8, 9-2. I would like to make it so when I click on a row, say the one containing 5-2, it will redirect me to a link with just the first number of the entry (in this case 5, not the whole 5-2) on the URL's form, say someothersite/?form.num=5. Same thing if I click on the rows with 5-1 or 5-7, but when I click 9-2, it will redirect me to someothersite/?form.num=9

Edit: I use version 6.2

As of 6.3 you can use dashboard eval expressions to create tokens, and use that before you redirect to another view:

<drilldown>
          <eval token="tmp">mvindex(split('click.value', "-"), 0)</eval>
          <link>someothersite?form.num=$tmp$</link>
</drilldown>

I forgot to mention I used 6.2, and this method didn't work. Do you have other alternative for 6.2?

The only thing that comes to mind for 6.2 is to use custom Javascript.

Is there anything new since 6.5?
