I have a Makefile that produces a package. All well and good. And as a
good developer I want that package to have a major and minor version
number. Also well and good.
Now the major version i can set for myself and I can work out the minor
# Version is set manually
VERSION = 2.0
# Work out the revision from the SVN revision
# This will be automatically updated when we commit
REVISION = `echo '$Revision$\' | cut -d ' ' -f 2`
So that's fine. Except I don't want to have to touch then commit the
Now I'd like people who do a svn export as well as an svn co to be able
to do this so that rules out grubbing through .svn directories. I'd also
rather not have a $Revision$ in every file and then recursively grep
through all of them looking for the highest number.
Is there anyway to force a file to always be updated on every commit?
