I'd really like to be able to include the svn revision number somewhere
I can reference it from my program so I know which source revision is
running on a specific binary, in case I don't record that somewhere.
Before I moved to the gnu configuration setup I had a target in my
makefile that changed a header slightly and did a svn ci. The header
included the $id$ tag that svn populated with versioning info.
Two problems with that, if I did an svn ci rather than the make svnci,
the file didn't get updated. The other problem is I haven't figured out
how to add another target and associated code to the Makefile.am.
Does anyone have a suggestion as to how I can automatically keep the svn
revision number in a config file somewhere?
