Assuming:

/tmp/TI/A is your working copy of A.

You want the working copy of B to be in /tmp/TI/A/B.

The URL of B is http://example.com/rep/B.

Then you wish to set the svn:externals propery of /tmp/TI/A to be "B
http://example.com/rep/B". The command for doing this is 'svn propset
svn:externals "B http://example.com/rep/B" /tmp/TI/A'.

The svn:externals property of a *directory* is a list of lines, each line
containing two fields. The directory is the one whose child will be the
external directory. The second field is the URL of the repository or
subdirectory of a repository that you wish to appear as a subdirectory of
another repository. The first field is name which the external directory
will have within its parent directory.
