Re: svn: Can't open file ' . --revision/format': No such file or directory

i am encountering the above error ie, svn: Can't open file '
. --revision/format': No such file or directory , when i try to backup
my svn repo daily thru a script.

The book says that the switches, like --revision, must come after the
repository name, not before. Nasty... modern practice is for switches
to be accepted anywhere, and older practice is for switches to come
first, not last, so this is rather confusing.

But it seems to explain the message -- it looks like the program is
trying to interpret "--revision" as the repository name.
