Version Control with Subversion - svnversion

Name

svnversion — Summarize the local revision(s) of a working copy.

Synopsis

svnversion [OPTIONS] WC_PATH [TRAIL_URL]

Description

svnversion is a program for summarizing the revision mixture of a working copy. The resultant revision number, or revision range, is written to standard output.

TRAIL_URL , if present, is the trailing portion of the URL used to determine if WC_PATH itself is switched (detection of switches within WC_PATH does not rely on TRAIL_URL ).

Switches

Like svnserve , svnversion has no subcommands, it only has switches.

--no-newline (-n)

Omit the usual trailing newline from the output.

--committed (-c)

Use the last-changed revisions rather than the current (i.e., highest locally available) revisions.

--help (-h)

Print a help summary.

--version

Print the version of svnversion and exit with no error.

Examples

If the working copy is all at the same revision (for example, immediately after an update), then that revision is printed out:

$ svnversion .
4168

You can add TRAIL_URL to show that the working copy is not switched from what you expect:

$ svnversion . /repos/svn/trunk
4168

For a mixed-revision working copy, the range of revisions present is printed:

$ svnversion .
4123:4168

If the working copy contains modifications, a trailing "M" is added:

$ svnversion .
4168M

If the working copy is switched, a trailing "S" is added:

$ svnversion .
4168S

Thus, here is a mixed-revision, switched working copy containing some local modifications:

$ svnversion .
4212:4168MS

If invoked on a directory that is not a working copy, svnversion assumes it is an exported working copy and prints "exported":

$ svnversion .
exported
