It would make more sense to use the svn command line client or even
call the
svn libraries directly, rather than TortoiseProc.

Wim, thanks for the reply. I have my own scripts interfacing with the
svn command line client. I have a point where the user will need to
choose revisions to be merged, and honestly my goal is not to have to
write my own svn log parser. Since Tortoise's Merge Wizard does
practically the same thing, I figured why not use it? This could be
worked around if tortoiseproc /command:log could return the user's
selected revisions...I know there's already a request out there for
that.
@Stefan,
Thanks for the reply! Glad to see I wasn't crazy and that the code is
in fact missing. My guess was that it was left out during a big
rewrite and the docs were not updated. I'm a relatively new user to
Tortoise, so I'm not familiar with the release history.
Maybe I can get a copy of VisStudio soon and help you guys reimplement
this and a few other features, though I'd be limited by my aging
knowledge of C++. I've been using Tortoise a short time, but I am
already a huge fan.
Thanks again, all,
David
