Diff repo to arbitrary file system file

I have searched in the book and the list archives and can't find how or
if there is a way to do this.

 

Is it possible to diff a file in the repository with a file on you file
system? The file system file would not be a checked out folder.

 

The use case here is to check out from vss and be able to compare files
in that folder to files in the svn repository.

 

I thought "Diff to URL" would let me do this, but it doesn't. The "URL"
seems to need to be a repo URL. The only work around I can find is to
checkout or export the repo files to my file system and use beyond
compare or other local diff tool to do this. So, we are looking for a
why to do it without having to checkout or export to our PC.

 

Thanks,

BOb
