I want to use the SVN command line to read the latest revision of a root folder, store it into a variable inside a bat file and echo it out.

I just need to find out that revision and store into a variable for later use. Any ideas?

svn info shows information. Try:

svn info c:\Path\To\Folder 

If you have unix-like tools available, you can pipe to grep

svn info c:\Path\To\Folder | grep "Revision:"

This might work in windows:

svn info c:\Path\To\Folder | find "Revision:"
