SVN Search capability

I'm a fairly new SVN user (few months old) and I was surprised to not be
able to find the "find" or "search" functionality in SVN.

Amazingly enough (from my point of view) this wonderful tool is missing
(or maybe it's well hidden) one of the most useful piece of
functionality of - that is search or find. As we have hundreds of
project with thousands of folders and many more files in the repository
it is always a challenge for myself (being relatively new on the job) to
locate a file by name in SVN. And of course the next natural search
option I couldn't find in SVN is to do a search by content and return a
list of all files in a folder or project that contains it. Did anyone
else encountered similar issues and had a similar request by any chance?


Best Regards,

Lawrence Cohan.
