RE: Re: externals question

Hi Taco,

The format of the command is svn propset svn:externals "value"
directory. E.g.

svn propset svn:externals "project1
svn://localhost/svnrepos/projects/generic" .

 - remember the externals value has to be enclosed in quotes so that it
appears to the command line as a single argument. Also the directory on
the working copy comes before the URL (and until 1.1 comes along you
can't have relative externals).

I use svn propedit instead of propset - e.g.

svn propedit svn:externals .

That brings up a text editor in which to put the svn:externals.

The svn:externals property is a set of lines of the format
<dir> <URL>
 - one directory per line. So in this case, you would type
project1 svn://localhost/svnrepos/projects/generic
into the text editor.

It is documented on pages 154-156 of the book, online at
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/svnbook/ch07s03.html

Does this make it clearer?
