Need latest rev num for deleted file

From: Kynn Jones <kynnjo_at_gmail.com>

I want to recover the last committed version of a file (call it foo/bar.c)
that was formerly under revision control, but which I deleted some weeks ago
with "svn del". I know that I can use svn copy to recover the latest
committed revision of this file, but for this i need the corresponding
revision number. How can I find this revision?


P.S. FWIW, if I try

% svn log foo

I get as output something like

r1155 | jones | 2008-11-19 10:50:02 -0500 (Wed, 19 Nov 2008) | 1 line


...which is of no use to me; for one thing, the date shown above is much
earlier than the date when I deleted foo/bar.c... The output is equally
useless if I add the -v flag to the command.

And if I try

% svn log -v foo/bar.c

i get an error message telling me that foo/bar.c is no longer under revision

etc., etc.
