Thank you for the help.
It seems I can't do what I want to do. But you have at least saved me
a lot of time trying to do it. I guess since I can't code I'll just
have to wait.
Unless, what it means here is actually referring to changes in each
file rather than different files:
"With the code that is currently in trunk, in this scenario, the svn
checkout command will still need to pull down the same number of bytes
from the server as a "normal" checkout. It is possible that it could
be enhanced in the future to more selectively pull down just the
differences, something like an rsync. A change of that nature has been
deferred for some future release or whenever someone comes along with
enough motivation to tackle it."
j_at_IDPP-0644:~/compile/trunk$ svn --version --quiet
j_at_IDPP-0644:~/compile$ svn checkout --force
Subcommand 'checkout' doesn't accept option '--force'
As I say though, thanks for helping out here :-)
I'd like to add this info to the FAQ.
