Binary diff

Hello all,

 

According to the manual:

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------

In the most general sense, Subversion handles binary files more
gracefully than CVS does. Because CVS uses RCS, it can only store
successive full copies of a changing binary file. But internally,
Subversion expresses differences between files using a
binary-differencing algorithm, regardless of whether they contain
textual or binary data. That means that all files are stored
differentially (compressed) in the repository, and small differences are
always sent over the network.

My question is: Can I, somehow, disable that smart diff on binary files?
The reason is that the commit of big binary file takes a lot of time and
I am looking for some way to make the commit run faster.

 

Tnx in advance,

Roman
