Many thanks, Max. This worked great, only did "move %i d:\folder"
instead of del to begin with, so I could undo things. Is a test repos

Of course the Unix command line is much more elegant and now
knowing that xargs is a command I searched for a Windows port
and will try it next time.

Though not unfamiliar with the command line I did not know the
FOR command and its many options. Have you something more of
this kind in your hat? ;-) I am still looking for a way to redirect svn
output to a dialog window (or notepad) so I can set up an SVN
toolbar in the HTML editor and get e.g. status or log, but also add
or commit messages shown. So far I only get a black flash of the
DOS window. A batch file works in that the output is shown in
notepad, but due to a bug in Homesite all the toolbar buttons are
replaced by the CMD icon then, so zero usability. I have no
programming experience, so I can't just do a little Python or C ...
