RE: ack! trying to run svn mkdir opens vim or something

svn is allowing you to edit your commit message with your $EDITOR.
You can provide the message directly on the command line with the -m switch:
svn -m "a commit message to remember I did it" mkdir.....
See http://svnbook.red-bean.com/svnbook-1.1/svn-book.html#svn-ch-3-sect-4.5
BTW, the doc really well-written.

Hi again,


I'm not just new to subversion, I'm also new to linux. I' trying to run svn mkdir to create a tags directory. When I run "svn mkdir file:///var/repository/proj1/tags" from a shell it opens up some crazy vim program with some commit.tmp file open or something. What is going on? Thanks.
