handling binary file

Hi All

I met a strange problem. I migrate my code tree from sf.net (CVS) to
berlios (SVN). Then I found I have almost all binary files are broken.
And seems svn can not even detect this. I feel SVN treat all these
binary files as textual files.

For example, I have this pdf file Iometer.pdf.

$ ll
total 1052
drwxrwxr-x 4 mingz mingz 4096 May 3 11:02 Docbook
drwxrwxr-x 3 mingz mingz 4096 May 3 11:02 Iometer_Files
-rw-rw-r-- 1 mingz mingz 988246 May 3 11:02 Iometer.pdf
-rw-rw-r-- 1 mingz mingz 68529 May 3 11:02 Iometer.sxw

Then I copy the correct file to overwrite it.

$ cp ../../../branches/IOMETER-restruct/iometer/Docs/Iometer.pdf .

See the file size changed.

$ ll
total 1056
drwxrwxr-x 4 mingz mingz 4096 May 3 11:02 Docbook
drwxrwxr-x 3 mingz mingz 4096 May 3 11:02 Iometer_Files
-rw-rw-r-- 1 mingz mingz 992633 Jul 27 13:53 Iometer.pdf
-rw-rw-r-- 1 mingz mingz 68529 May 3 11:02 Iometer.sxw

But svn can not detect the file is changed.

$ svn st

How to correct this and let svn treat them as binary?

Thanks!
Ming
