Could you please show some examples of the desired result? How do you
use the $HeadURL keyword now? Do you want to make $HeadURL show
contents of this file? What '^' file are you asking about?

I assume by ^ he means it the same way that SVN can use this when specifying a URL within
the working copy. IOW, he wants the repository-relative path of the file not the complete

As long as you are using SVN 1.8 or later you can now define custom keywords.  See:

It looks like %P is the value you would want to use.
