Re: Using Subclipse with svn+ssh:// on Windows (with plink)

I'm using linux now, but I seem to remember having to work around this
in windows. I wrote a one-line cmd file called plink2.cmd and put it on
my path:

plink -2 %*

Then I told eclipse that my ssh command was plink2.cmd. You can use this
for debugging too, by adding a line like this:

@echo %* >> \temp\plink2.log

to see how plink2 is being invoked. I'm sure others on the list will
have more current methods :)

Dan
