svndumpfilter on Win32

I am trying to use svndumpfilter on a Windows platform to create a new
repository for each project in one old repository. I have followed
the documentation in order to do this by first dumping the old
repository into a dumpfile like this:
 
svnadmin dump repos > repos-dumpfile
 
Next, the documentation says to pipe the linux cat command through the
svndumpfilter program like this:
 
cat repos-dumpfile | svndumpfilter include project1 > project1-dumpfile
 
I have tried this with the following methods, since DOS does not
include cat:
 
type repos-dumpfile | svndumpfilter include project1 > project1-dumpfile
more repos-dumpfile | svndumpfilter include project1 > project1-dumpfile
print /D:CON repos-dumpfile | svndumpfilter include project1 > project1-dumpfile
 
Also, I downloaded the cat program for DOS from
unxutils.sourceforge.net and tried these methods:
 
cat repos-dumpfile | svndumpfilter include project1 > project1-dumpfile
cat A repos-dumpfile | svndumpfilter include project1 > project1-dumpfile
cat B repos-dumpfile | svndumpfilter include project1 > project1-dumpfile
 
where A means all of the file and B means to treat the file as a
binary file.
 
In each case (that produced anything) the generated filtered dumpfile
was very small. When I tried to load the filtered dumpfile into a
newly created repository, it created all the revision numbers, but the
repository remained empty (no data).
 
Has anyone been successful using the svndumpfilter program on a
Windows platform? If so, how!? Also, is this a functionality that
the Subversion software should be able to accomplish without relying
on an external program, i.e. cat?
 
Thanks in advance,
 
Floor
