RE: using $Header $ and $Log $

Thanks for getting back on this subject, but there is some clarification on

$Header$ is not the same as $Id$.
$Id$ does not have the path. $Header$ does (I just checked with the CVS docs
on this) and that's the only diff.

My script actually uses that field(filepath) to open the repository for the
It then retrieves the revision info(history/log) between an old build of a
program and the newest one.
It then generates reports from these results so we can confirm what went
into a build.

I guess what I'm getting to is that $Header$ keeps some "path" to its
location in the repository and
that it be consistent,eg, $HeadURL$ should be used for the "file" portion.

thanks for looking into this.

I'm working on a patch to Subversion which will allow for site specific
custom keywords, but it will not support any multiline keyword
(specifically $Log$).  The $Header$ keyword in CVS is equivalent to $Id$
in Subversion (if you really need the full file path, use $HeadURL in
