Hi Mark!

I tried that and got a message saying

svn: Cannot replace a directory from within

which seemed somewhat strange to me since I don't want to replace an entire
dir, just a single file within that dir


My working copy is located here ("admincm" is the name of the module which
was created by checking out "$SVNROOT/admincm/tags/<tag-name>"):


The "pwd" command tells me:


I'm using "svn switch" like this:

svn switch

($SVNROOT is "svn+ssh://<user>@<host>/home/empic/svn/empic-suite")

(The file "InvoiceConfirmTextInput.java" really exists in the working copy,
I checked that with the following find cmd:

find . -name InvoiceConfirmTextInput.java

and it returned


Furthermore, I also tried the "svn switch" cmd from
"/home/build/bazl/kv-uhp-ws" which caused the following error message:

svn: '.' is not a working copy

(The error message is correct since the current working dir is indeed not a
working copy, but I'm sort of lost at this point).

Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
