OK. Let's do it slowly, so I understand right this time :-).

I need to tell svn merge which paths it should merge together to create
the patched version of my source. To do so, I cd into my private working
copy of my branch. That is a

$ cd $HOME/Manta/manta/compiler/lasm

Then, I tell svn to merge the changes made in the trunk into my working
copy. I'll issue:

$ svn merge -r 7:9 URL-to-trunk-lasm .

That's what you told me to do. I did that and it didn't do what it
should. Now, if I just want to see the diffs between the trunk 'lasm'
and my working copy 'lasm', I'll do a

$ $HOME/Manta/manta/compiler/lasm
$ svn diff -r 7:9 URL-to-trunk-lasm .

I'll again see all changes made in the trunk version of the 'lasm' dir.
Is that correct? Or am I mislead?

Confused :-)
