externals creation question >> batch file

From: Tj Warren <tj_at_sage-inc.com>

Hello all -

I have two repos
/svn/common/ and

I have requirements that when a user checks out say /linux/foo/bar/foo1
he receives /common/bar/.
I understand setting up externals to the point where I can do it
manually. But I have a large project and I have a batch file created
that should generate externals for different directories in the repo and
link them to the directories from /common.
Here is a bit of the batch file - it is quite large, so here is just a
section where all the sections are generally the same except for the
different directories and such

svn checkout svn://
echo "externals
svn://" >prop
echo "externals svn://"
echo "externals svn://" >>prop
echo "externals svn://" >>prop
echo "externals svn://" >>prop
svn propset svn:externals -F prop config
svn commit config -m "externals"
rm config -rf

The problem is that this batch file is only creating the external from
the last echo from this statement. Is this a problem with this batch
file? or is it a problem with the way propset works?
