I've been working on some stuff, and have it in a local subversion repo. Since I've got a client and a server, I'd like to have my code check to ensure that both are using the same version. I thought that, for at least testing, using the revision number would be a good way to go (I could throw in some compile-time options to have an actual number if stuff ever gets to that point).

My problem is that I have yet to figure out a way to find the revision number. I've got a script that builds binaries, and thought it would be as easy as doing something like:

g++ -o mytestprogram src/*.cpp -DVERSION=`cat .svn/version` -lMYLIBS

(sorry about the likely poor syntax with the "-D..." part. I've never tried to actually define something as a string, just as existing or not, plus it's been a long day)

Anyway, I didn't see the revision anywhere in the .svn dirs. Could somebody help me out (once again, sorry if this is obvious, I'm tired)?
