Re: How to use 'svn diff' command

just typing
'svn diff'

without any arguments, from your working checked out copy, will give
you differences in all files from your current directory down the
tree, for all subdirs that are under revision control.

If you give a path, it has to be a path to a locally checked out thing
(directory or file) that is under revision control.

It seems like you are giving the path to the repository, not your
locally checked out copy. But you don't need to since the checked out
copy already has knowledge of which repo it came from.
