Perl bindings

From: Miller, Eric <Eric.Miller_at_amd.com>

I'm attempting to use the swig'd perl bindings in the 1.4.2 installation
and ran into some difficulties with lock discovery.

Basically the svn_wc_status_t interface doesn't seem to be doing what I


Consider the following working copy as reported by 'svn status -u':

? SVNWc.ps

     K 6 b

M 11 c

       * 6 d

? SVNClient.ps

     O 6 a


So 'b' is locked in this wc, 'a' is locked in some other wc, and the .ps
files are not svn controlled.

Also I am using svn+ssh:// for the url in this wc.


My perl code:

sub locked {

  my ($path, $status) = @_;

  print "$path is locked? ";

  if($status->locked()) {

    print "Yep\n";

  } else {

    print "Nope\n";




$o->{_svn_client}->status($o->{wc},'HEAD', \&locked, $o->{recursive},

$o->{show_updates}, $o->{no_ignore});


Consider this output (get_all=0, show_updates=0):

SVNWc.ps is locked? Yep

SVNClient.ps is locked? Yep

b is locked? Yep

c is locked? Nope


Problem A: Unversioned files are reported as locked when show_updates
is 0.


And this output (get_all=0, show_updates=1):

SVNWc.ps is locked? Nope

b is locked? Nope

c is locked? Nope

d is locked? Nope

SVNClient.ps is locked? Nope

a is locked? Nope


Problem B: Locks are not reported when show_updates is 1.


I have also tried using the entry method with $status->entry->locked()
with no luck.


Can anyone tell me if my problems stem from misuse of the bindings or
with the bindings themselves?

As a follow on question - If these problems stem from the perl bindings,
would the python bindings be a better choice?
