Unlike CVS which assigns a revision number to a file, SVN assigns a
revision number to the whole repository.

But the log for each file has the revision history for that file, its
just that the number will not go up by one for each change to the file.

Use the 'svn log <file>" command to show the history of the <file>
and you will see the specific revision numbers, just use that in the SVN

Here is a live snippet of one log of one of my files

r4195 | pfarrell | 2009-10-07 00:30:03 -0400 (Wed, 07 Oct 2009) | 1 line

create Pat private branch
r4024 | pfarrell | 2009-10-01 02:02:04 -0400 (Thu, 01 Oct 2009) | 2 lines

use safeForwardToView()

r3990 | pfarrell | 2009-09-29 14:29:16 -0400 (Tue, 29 Sep 2009) | 3 lines

add subdirectory 'closed/' to urls that we expect to access when logged in.


so if you want revision -r 3990, that's the one to use
