RE: SVN command line - spaces on Windows

My DOS location is in the working directory that contains the file in
question. If I rename the file to remove the spaces, using the SVN
command line, then the merge works. So I'm it doesn't look like a file
contents issue.

Thanks
Jay

What directory are you running it from, in your working copy? Does
that directory contain "file name.txt"?

Yes; in fact, I'm not even sure the problem here is with space.

(The "%20" encoding is a good idea, btw, since these are still URLs.
But again, I'm not sure this problem is due to the space...)
