In SVN, how do you get the version number out aside from manually checking each file? Is there a way to extract it automatically?

Yes, but what exactly do you want, what client OS are you running and what method are you using to access SVN (Tool  + Connection method)

If your using the command line, change to the directory and try:

svn info

OR:

svn status

Perhaps a 'keyword anchor' [1] is what you are looking for?

For example, SVN will automatically replace occurrences $Revision$ in a version controlled file, with the revision of number of the file. There are other keywords that may be of interest.

Hope this helps.
