You mention both perl and php and the answer differs between them. These
answers aren't really specific to svn either. Here you go:

In perl, if you run exec(), no more lines in your script will ever be
run. Use system() or `` (backticks) instead. The return code will be
found in the $? variable, such as:

my $output = `svn ls svn://foo.com/repos/trunk 2>&1`;
die "svn failed with errorcode $?"
  if $?;

In php, you'll want to run the command as
exec('svn ls svn://foo.com/repos/trunk', $output, $errorcode);
if ($errorcode)
