Re: Re: how to search body of all revisions?

Surely you must have at least some idea of when this change happened,
and when it was first noticed that the code went missing, and can look
through just that range of revisions?

Yes, you can "dump" all the revisions of a given file, but you'll have
to script it.

svn cat URL_TO_FILE_at_REV1 >file.rev1
svn cat URL_TO_FILE_at_REV2 >file.rev2
svn cat URL_TO_FILE_at_REV3 >file.rev3

And so on.
