If you need an API to use Subversion, I'd rather look at the various language
bindings that Subversion provides. Note that I meant Subversion, not

That said, you could e.g. use keyword replacement to get at some repository
information. Those also work for resource files which you can use to embed
version information into DLLs and EXEs.

One thing though: If you change one an unrelated file in a different project,
the repository's version number is bumped. Typically, the advise is to not use
the revision number for anything but in order to refer to a specific revision
inside the repository, i.e. treat it as a Subversion-internal artifact.
Instead, use your own versioning schema and create according tags with
meaningful names.

Lastly, if you really want some Subversion revision, as volatile as it is, you
can use the "svnversion" program. However, read the warnings, because it is
possible that that program doesn't give you a version number, e.g. if the
working copy is modified.

Good luck!
