*IF* I were doing this on the command-line, I would do:

svn log http://svn.example.com/repo -r'{2006-11-01}:{2006-12-01}'

Note that this will give you the log (and author and date and time)
of every revision between those dates, but also most likely one
revision before the start date.

There's also an XML option, in case you would like to parse XML:

svn log --xml ...

However, if you're using Delphi or C++, you may prefer to use the
Subversion language bindings. I can't offer any advice on these
though as I've never used them.
