Most "source code" files are also text files. With the right tools,
any text file can be treated as
the source "code" for something else, including another text file.

Substitution of $Revision$ and other SVN keywords is basically
generating a new text file from
another text file. But since it is built into SVN, you don't see it as
a "build" operation.

The subwcrev tool is a stand alone tool that performs similar
substitutions with out the use of
the $ to bracket the keyword and its value. It is an explicit build
operation that generates a new
text file from another.

I dont think subwcrev will do what you need, but the documentation
should answer that definitively.

There are more flexible tools that perform text substitution. Examples
include sed, awk and TXR.
There are even full programming languages that include sophisticated
text manipulation features, such
as Perl.
