Hi

In my current working folder which contains all the head revisions, I'm
trying to look at an old file and diff it with head. I don't wish to roll
back the changes yet and know how to do that. What I would like to do is to
retrieve a specific revision into my working folder first. I already
renamed the current head revision to .old. Then I like to visually diff
them. Why this round about way? Cuz exectuing the following command is not
visually pleasing nor do I understand it:

C:\>svn diff -r 24097 build.xml ==> this works but the output is so messy
looking; all those +'s, -'s and @@ signs... I'd rather windiff it or look
at them in some visual editor

C:\>svn co -r 24097 build.xml ==> this doesn't work, why? It'll spew the
checkout help screen at me.

Thanks
