RE: post-revprop-change Hook Script

I have written a perl script inside post-revprop-change hook file. When I run this perl (hook) script alone, I am able to run it without errors. But I am not able to run this script after a commit. My filename is still "post-revprop-change" without the .py extension.

you must specify the absolute path to the file, for example:

echo hello > /tmp/test

For most commands you must also supply the absolute path to their

/usr/local/bin/svnlook [...]

the output of a post-commit or post-revprop-change hook is never
shown anywhere. if you want to output something and see it somewhere,
you'll have to write it into a file, as above.
