 svn-multi (was svnkw)

This package lets you typeset keywords of the version
control system Subversion inside your LaTeX files anywhere
you like. Unlike the very similar package 'svn' the usage of
multiple files for one LaTeX document is well supported.

This work consists of the files svn-multi.dtx, svn-multi-pl.dtx, svn-multi.ins
and the derived files svn-multi.sty, svnkw.sty and svn-multi.pl.

Tiny example:
Put the following Subversion keyword at the start of all your LaTeX files of
your document:




or both.
Attach the subversion property svn:keyword with a value of 
'URL Date Revision Author', 'Id' or both, respectively, to all LaTeX files.
Subversion will expand this keywords the next time the files are committed and
then the SVN information can be typeset using
    \svnauthor, \svnrev, \svndate, \svnhour, ...
which will hold the information of the latest comitted file
anywhere in your multi-file LaTeX document.

Also per-file macros exist:
    \svnfileauthor, \svnfilerev, ...
which hold the keyword values of the current file.

From the .dtx file (if you don't get the .sty files directly):
Unpack the zip file and run 'make'.
You also can do it manually:
  [pdf]latex svn-multi.ins      # for the style file and perl script
  [pdf]latex svn-multi.dtx      # for the documentation
2x[pdf]latex example-main       # for the example

For the large keyword group example document:
  [pdf]latex group-example
  perl svn-multi.pl group-example
2x[pdf]latex group-example

Place the two .sty files
  svn-multi.sty         # Package
  svnkw.sty             # Wrapper for backward compatibility
into your TEXMF tree, e.g. in

Make the perl script svn-multi.pl executable:
  chmod +x svn-multi.pl
and place it in an directory in your $PATH, e.g. under Unix/Linux in
  /usr/bin/svn-multi.pl          or
  /usr/local/bin/svn-multi.pl    or
Consider to rename or link it to 'svn-multi'.

svn-multi – Sub­ver­sion key­words in multi-file doc­u­ments

This pack­age lets you type­set key­words of the ver­sion con­trol sys­tem Sub­ver­sion in­side your files any­where you like. Un­like the oth­er­wise sim­i­lar pack­age svn the use of mul­ti­ple files for one doc­u­ment is well sup­ported.

The pack­age uses the au­thor's file­hook and cur­rfile pack­ages.

The pack­age in­ter­acts with an ex­ter­nal Perl script, to re­trieve in­for­ma­tion nec­es­sary for the re­quired out­put.
