I have Cygwin installed on my system, but I am not using a Cygwin
build of SVN. In fact, I installed this one:
http://subversion.tigris.org/files/documents/15/29065/svn-1.3.0-setup.exe

Then I created a repository via TortoiseSVN:
http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/tortoisesvn/TortoiseSVN-1.3.1.5521-svn-1.3.0.msi?download

Then I tried to find out how to add (i.e. import) only some of the
files in a folder at once. As I could not do it, I downloaded and
installed RapidSVN:
http://rapidsvn.org/download/RapidSVN-0.9.0.exe

Unfortunately, I this did not help at all. Then I tried the command
line interface of SVN:

svn import main.cpp header.h file:///d:/svn_repos/experimental
svn: Too many arguments to import command

svn import *.h file:///d:/svn_repos/experimental --message ""
svn: Too many arguments to import command

svn import main.cpp file:///d:/svn_repos/experimental/main.c --message
""
Adding main.cpp
Committed revision 1.

And, btw, isn't there any way not to specify the name of a file in the
URL of the repository when importing it? It is almost always
redundant.
