You might rather want to use svnversion:

  usage: svnversion [OPTIONS] [WC_PATH [TRAIL_URL]]
    Produce a compact 'version number' for the working copy path
    WC_PATH. TRAIL_URL is the trailing portion of the URL used to
    determine if WC_PATH itself is switched (detection of switches
    within WC_PATH does not rely on TRAIL_URL). The version number
    is written to standard output. For example:
      $ svnversion . /repos/svn/trunk
    The version number will be a single number if the working
    copy is single revision, unmodified, not switched and with
    an URL that matches the TRAIL_URL argument. If the working
    copy is unusual the version number will be more complex:
     4123:4168 mixed revision working copy
     4168M modified working copy
     4123S switched working copy
     4123P partial working copy, from a sparse checkout
     4123:4168MS mixed revision, modified, switched working copy
    If invoked on a directory that is not a working copy, an
    exported directory say, the program will output 'exported'.
    If invoked without arguments WC_PATH will be the current directory.
  Valid options:
    -n [--no-newline] : do not output the trailing newline
    -c [--committed] : last changed rather than current revisions
    -h [--help] : display this help
    --version : show program version information
