Sorry that I did not state it clearly in my last posting. When I say "new
files or new directories", I mean the new files and new directories that I
create in my working copy. They have not been added nor committed to the
I have actually created a test repository and tried things out. So far, I
have tried these two commands:
"svn diff -r 1000 ."
"svn diff -r 990:1000 ."
I think the first command compares my working copy to revision 1000 in the
repository. However, this does not show any new file or new directory that I
create in my working copy.
The second command compares revision 990 and revision 1000 in the
repository. It does not look at my working copy.
I have also tried this,
svn diff /home/wc https://repos/proj@1000
But I get an error message from svn.
