Subject Re: History in subversion

Thanks for your help, I will try again this.

But this is very poor compared to ClearCase. Nobody tried to script that ?

It is also possible to read the SVN repository without checkout, there is a
way to address an element, something like this :
<element url>@revnumber

But it is not possible to use a syntax like this :


I tried, it doesn't work.

Actually, I just try to analyze all elements, files and directories,
contained in a SVN repository. I'd like to be able to parse all the
elements - if possible without any checkout (that would be great).

Other challenge is : I need to restore a file element that has been removed
in a very old revision, and of course I don't know which one.

Any search command or script with Subversion ?
