Re: What's the command to restore a deleted file

Make a copy first!!!!!

Ok, now that I got that out of my system. I assumed you removed the
file locally, but not in the repository. ie 'rm filename', not 'svn
rm filename; svn commit;'.

I'm probably not the best to ask about this, but I'll take a stab at
it. Someone else please correct me if there is a better/easier way.

You need to figure out what the last revision of this file that was checked in.
If you know the revision or a date, use them.
If you are on a project without a lot of commits, you might be able to
'svn info .', start with the revision given and work your way back
until one works.

svn cp -r <revision> <url> filename

then check it in.
