Just use forward slashes in your scripts, Windows svn understands them
and seems to convert them internally. Then you don't have worry about
backslashes. This works with both absolute and relative paths.

Example from a cygwin prompt:

[danello@danello2k2]
~/src/branches/ec-4.3.0.0/java
$ svn log D:/src/branches/ec-4.3.0.0/java/src/com/idx/ec/Version.java
------------------------------------------------------------------------

...

-or-

[danello@danello2k2]
~/src/branches/ec-4.3.0.0/java
$ svn log src/com/idx/ec/Version.java

So, I've made peace with the falling leaves. I see their same fate in
my own body. But I won't be frightened when I am awoken from this dream
and returned to that which gave birth to me.
