Subject Re: '@' character in file names
Date Fri, 09 Apr 2010 20:29:37 GMT
Hi Aaron,

This is the way you're 'supposed' to refer to filenames that have the
"@" symbol in them without using the peg revision syntax. The book
talks about it here:
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn.advanced.pegrevs.html
The relevant paragraph is roughly 2/3 of the way down the page,
starting with "The perceptive..."

Hope this helps.

Tyler
