RE: Re: SVNversion returns "exported" instead of revision number

Stefan! Many Thanks! You gave me exactly what I needed to resolve the problem, even if I have never really diagnosed it.
You sent a link to the code for version 1.7.x. That is the version I have installed on my machine, but the call to svnversion that returns the value "exported" refers to the version which is in our repository - and that is 1.6.6. Looking, along the same path as the link you provided, at the code for the 1.6.x version, there is this comment:
        " If invoked on a directory that is not a working copy, an\n"
        " exported directory say, the program will output 'exported'.\n"
So, clearly, that version is not recognizing mine as a working copy. And while I am curious as to how I managed to get it into that state, I found that using the 1.7.7 version returns the correct value. So I will chalk it up to either the difference in the versions or outright user error and just be content for the moment that it is working.

Thank you for your gracious and WONDERFULLY helpful response!

PS. SubWCRev looks both useful and powerful. I put the end in end-user, but I love to learn and that is a goodie!
