I am writing a large LaTeX document, and I would like to display
the current SVN revision number on the title page. The problem is
that the LaTeX document is split into several files
I inserted $Revision$ in the
root.tex file, so that it is
displayed on the front page.
Of course, I also ran
svn propset svn:keywords 'Revision' root.tex
But the problem is that this $Revision$ variable in
naturally, is not updated if I only modify the
for example, and commit to SVN. So the PDF will still display the old revision number.
I artificially have to modify
root.tex as well, if I want the new SVN revision number to be
displayed. And just
touch root.tex won't do it because SVN is
smart. I actually have to change some text, at least add some space or so
What's the best way to solve this properly?
