Get Specific File in Revision SVN

After discussion with my colleague, as well as numerous links on top Google searches which indicated this was not possible or to use “svn export”.. we finally decided to analyze a well known PHP SVN Client which had a “getfile” functionality like we were looking for.

The solution was amazingly simple and can be accessed with an HTTP request, even directly in your browser:

Syntax.
[protocol][serverhostname]:[port]/svn/[repositoryname]/!svn/bc/[versionnumber][path][filename]

Ex.
http://svn.andronetics.com:8080/svn/dev/!svn/bc/111/Applications/RobotManagement/trunk/README.txt
