svn -- checking out a specific file

* Hi,
     Is it possible to checkout specific file (or set of files) in
subversion?
     Our build process requires a single XML file to determine some
dependencies, but I dont know how to checkout a single file from SVN. Also
the 'svn cat' works only if there is an working copy present. In my case, I
dont have one and I dont need one (Just because for getting a single file,
having a working copy of the directory is a bit costly). All I need is a
read only copy of a particular file. Is there any way I can create a
working copy of a directory without populating it and then checkingout the
particular XML file I need? **Any help on this is welcome. I am using **
Subversion <http://subversion.tigris.org/> version 1.2.3 (r15833).*
*
Regards
PraveenDS*
