Subversion timestamp in file

After looking at several online applications, I have noticed that many have something similar to this (phpBB example)

 *                              memberlist.php
 *                            -------------------
 *   begin                : Friday, May 11, 2001
 *   copyright            : (C) 2001 The phpBB Group
 *   email                :
 *   $Id: memberlist.php,v 2004/07/11 16:46:15 acydburn Exp $
I have just started using subversion and was wondering how you get something like that; more specifically, the "$Id" line? Or... is this only something with CVS, or not even related to either? Thanks a lot.

I figured it out in case anyone else ever needs to know:

First you need to put the $Id:$ variable in your code where you want to add the ID line. Then you run the following command:

svn propset svn:keywords "Id" filename
Then you svn commit your files and your done.

Find more information on propset here.


id, subversion, svn
