Okay, the svn diff > ... command creates exactly the same patch as the
context menu. This is not at all surprisings since I assume that the svn
library is handling the command in both cases.
The first time I tried to run "patch -p0 ..." command failed because,
for some reason, patch believed that some of the changes have already
I tried a different set of changes today on two identical working copies
using both tsvn and patch. TSVN added and extra EOL to the end of the
file and path did not. Also, I think I have noticed that if you modify
the last line of the file the extra EOL is not added. I don't have time
right now to verify that.
Can someone else give this a try and verify my results. All you need to
do is create a patch from a modified working copy and apply it to a
non-modified working copy and you'll see an extra EOL at the end of each
patched file. I think but have not confirmed that if the last line in
the file changes the extra EOL is not added.
