Subject Re: CVS/ SVN Modified file selector
Date Fri, 15 Sep 2006 19:08:30 GMT

I do not know such a selector out of the box.

There is a svn antlib, but I do not know if it contains this.

Using the svn status command, should be possible to write that.

The selector idea is good in principle, what will be difficult will be to implement it in
an efficient way. Meaning not starting svn status on each file of interest. 

Maybe run svn status on the whole directory of the first file which gets queried, and hold
the results in an array in memory ?

Where I am working we wanted also to write a selector to find the "rogue" files in a ClearCase
sandbox. What we did in the end was to write a task which takes as attributes a directory
to scan and a reference name and creates a new fileset, with id the reference passed as parameter.
This way you do not have to do any assumptions (about when your selector will be called) and
you start "cleartool.exe" only once. Similar would be true when developing similar functionalities
(finding modified files, finding rogue files) for SVN or CVS.
