And just to mention a few svn clients with GUIs:

Linux:  kdesvn (and many others)
Windows:  tortoisesvn
Macos:  svnx

All of these allow you to get log output, but each also has a way to look at 
diffs in code, co or export, copy, etc.  Rather than having to deal with svn 
at the command line, it is all available in a nice GUI.
