Re: How do a branch/switch a single file?

Well, I did try it. But apparently I did it Wrong(tm). I do believe that
you can do it, as the svn book says so. Just not sure how.

If I use b.txt as the second argument I got a directory called b.txt.

If I try to include b.txt in the url, i.e.

svn switch svn+ssh://machine/users/bhuddleston/b.txt I get

svn: URL 'svn+ssh://machine/users/bhuddleston/b.txt' refers to a file, not a
directory.

Assume I am really really outstandingly not bright. What is the syntax for
switching b.txt to the "branch" url?

I am missing something fundamental I think.
