Minor correction to The Definitive Guide "commit" entry

In chapter 8 the book says:

> Note that if you want to use a files that's under version control for your commit message with --file, you need to pass the --force switch:
>
> $ svn commit -F file_under_vc.txt foo.c
> Sending foo.c
> Transmitting file data .
> Committed revision 6.

Obviously (I think) that command should have "--force" in it:

> $ svn commit --force -F file_under_vc.txt foo.c

Patch attached.
