Could you please show some examples of the desired result? How do you
use the $HeadURL keyword now? Do you want to make $HeadURL show
contents of this file? What '^' file are you asking about?
I assume by ^ he means it the same way that SVN can use this when specifying a URL within the working copy. IOW, he wants the repository-relative path of the file not the complete URL.
As long as you are using SVN 1.8 or later you can now define custom keywords. See: https://subversion.apache.org/docs/release-notes/1.8#custom-keywords and http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn.advanced.props.special.keywords.html
It looks like %P is the value you would want to use.
