How to use command line svn with builtin MATLAB integration?

MATLAB ships with a built in source controle integrations with svn or git.
I am using svn, which works fine in MATLAB via the filebrowser.
Can I invoke svn by a command line prompt? The answer here suggests it should be possible
Also the MATLAB help gives an example of the command to manually register binary files:
svn propset svn:mime-type application/octet-stream binaryfilename
But how can I use this svn command? svn does not work at the MATLAB prompt, nor at the system prompt. I searched for .exe files containing svn on my system disk but could not find it. I have not attempted to install svn myself - I am relying on the instance that comes with a MATLAB install.
Thanks if you can help!

You might need to install an SVN command-line client to use the "Command-Line SVN Integration" with MATLAB. You may refer to the SVN Source Control Options in this documentation

Sorry not to respond sooner but thanks for this doc pointer.
I arrived at Answers having originally read the doc page you link to. I couldn't make use of the example there:
svn propset svn:mime-type application/octet-stream binaryfilename
I previously have installed an svn client in the days when MATLAB did not have inbuilt source control integration, but as am now enjoying the integrated source control I thought perhaps I could skip this step. Besides which I was concerned about the possibility of a conflict between an installation I added and that which ships with MATLAB.
Underneath all this I had created a config file to register binary files with svn (following the instructions at the doc you link to), but have accidentally ended up with a config.m file instead of a config file because I was using the MATLAB editor. So I was interested in whether I could check at the command line whether the configuration was working with config.m instead of config!
