Re: Feature request: SubWCRev if not inside a working copy

Why do you need a parallel working copy? If you want to discard
changes, you can simply revert them.

That said, there are alternatives.

1. You could use a script to export working copy with an already
generated header file. The script would run SubWCRev in the working
copy, then copy the generated header file to your parallel copy.

2. You could use "Keyword Substitution" instead of SubWCRev. See:
