Is it possible to get the current values into a file?

eg. I have a file which changed last in revision 100.
HEAD is at 105.
file includes "$Rev$" and has "svn:keywords" set to "Rev".

I tried the following things:

- update (which says "at revision xxx" but does nothing)

- rm file ; svn update file. That works, but is not what I want - what if
someone changed the file?? I know I could check the status - but that's a
little bit complicated.

- "svn merge -r BASE:HEAD file". That doesn't work, and I don't understand
why. The error it gives is (subversion 0.24.1)
        svn: a path under revision control is needed for this operation
        svn: svn_client__get_revision_number: need a version-controlled
                path to fetch local revision info.

How can I get the current HEAD revision number into this file???
