svn commands

Posted on: January 26, 2011

1. how to check out a file that is already deleted

svn cat url_to_file@revision > file_name

this will write a basic file without the revision history. if you want revision history, use svn copy instead.

note you have to use @revision for a deleted file. cannot use -r revision. it will complain file does not exist.

in fact, you can have both @revision and -r revision and even supply two different numbers.

2. svn info

can give you the url to the depot, and the latest revision number (a bit outdated on the client machine).
