it would be the equivlant of svn revert foo && svn update foo. It fetches
HEAD (or the sticky tag) from the repository and overwrites the local copy.

Well, the * gets expanded by the shell, and then it gets mad about having to
revert things that aren't modified (or aren't even in source control). It
*could* try to proceed anyway, but generally revert tries to be picky about
questionable arguments, since it's going to destroy things forever...

Well, it would revert property changes :-). But it wouldn't recurse

Or the simpler, "svn revert --recursive ."
Just be sure you mean it before you throw out all your local changes :-)

You may also find svn-clean in
http://svn.collab.net/viewcvs/svn/trunk/contrib/client-side/ useful - it
will delete any unversioned files from the WC. combined with revert, it
should then be a totally clean checkout again (except for anything that's
been switched == sticky updated, which will still be switched)
