RE: Re: Using TortoiseSVN to set Binary properties

Absolutely Subversion supports it. It's throughout that page, for
instance:

Quote:
But we've been touting the flexibility that Subversion offers for your
property values. And if you are planning to have a multi-line textual,
**or even binary,** property value, you probably do not want to supply
that value on the command-line. So the propset subcommand takes a --file
(-F) option for specifying the name of a file which contains the new
property value.

For TSVN to support it, Subversion would need to first. I've never
heard of anything but text content for properties. And I see nothing in
The Book which indicates it's possible.
