Re: command line invocation of GUI

Hi Andy,

I'm the only programmer on my team and everybody else generally use
the TSVN GUI. I use the SVN library from tmatesoft for doing my
commit, add etc. But the use case that I mentioned requires a GUI and
I thought I could probably invoke the TSVN GUI from command line
instead of writing my own Java GUI using tmatesoft APIs. I thought I
should do a Runtime.getRuntime.exec() and invoke this GUI. From the
Windows commandline, saying TortoiseProc.exe does not open up the Repo
Browser (probably because it doesn't know the URL). What I wanted to
know was whether I could specify the URL as a cmd line parameter.

Sorry if my question was not clearly worded.
