RE: Feature Question

Ya I just found that out with the emails that were sent yesterday. It
seems that is what I am looking for. I opened the pre-commit.tmpl on my
windows operating system and I am looking for a place where I can send in
the names of the files that are trying to get committed. I would like
have a program and its parameters called pre-commit.exe [FILEPATHandNAME]
[REVISIONNUMBER] and then my program can change the version number on the
[FILEPATHandNAME] if it is an executable. So is the following possible?

1. Commit Test.exe into a server where the repository is stored.
2. pre-commit.exe gets all the files and checks to see if there is an
executable that needs changing.
        a. If a .exe is found then change the Test.exe's revision number
just before it is committed. (I am unsure about this because where is the
.exe file getting changed. Is the path that comes into my program going
to be a path to Test.exe on the clients computer or does a copy of
Test.exe get sent to the server and the path lead me there?)
3. After updating the exe allow the commit to proceed.

I also read the documentation in the pre-commit.tmpl and it mentions
something about "svnlook". I am unable to find any examples using this
utility or any documentation on it?

Thanks for all the help on this.

run an executable just before a check-in?

The subversion pre-commit hook is your friend. It runs on the server and
do a lot of nice stuff for you.
