Re: SVN as windows service?

This might be a good example:
http://www.codersource.net/win32_nt_service.html. The code isn't much, so it
might not take too long. Just watch out for overflows and such - bad
services will ruin a Win32 box.

I've played with sample code in C, C#, and Assembly (even Perl is possible!)
but never needed to acutally use it. I've always used the MS resource kit's

Best of luck,
