RE: Searching within files

It's pretty simple. We just want to be able to do simple things like find every place that calls a certain method. We have no reason to look at anything but the latest revision. The repository is way too large to get the entire thing as a working copy.

In source safe, you could pick a branch, and it would recursively search in all files and folders. It was extremely slow, but that's expected because of the sheer volume.

We also like to be able to search for a certain filename using wildcards if necessary.

That's really the extent of it. Nothing fancy. A client tool could do it easily in theory. It would ask for a subversion export and then watch the output stream for what is being searched for.

Also, the discussion has just started on the dev list about implementing the "svn find" functionality. Maybe you could offer some "user perspective".
