Re: svn cat and eol-style

Anything is possible :)

The problem is the diff exposed to the client just produces a unified
diff file. We would then have to parse that file to create the
difference nodes. This is doable, but i wouldn't want to have to do it!
If SVN gave us the raw differences, it would be *MUCH* easier.

I have checked the svn client and libs and they look fine.
svn_client_cat (cat.c) creates a temp file and does an eol and keywork
substitution on it (if the eol property is set).
This is used from both the cat command and javahl.

I am out of ideas.
