Ah ha ha. Of course! I'm spending most of my time in Windows using
compiled unix tools - all my command-line intelligence has atrophied in
the face of batch files. :)

Much better - thanks again.

Aside from a changleog, there's no particularly good way to handle
deletions using this method. The gain in simplicity of distribution
unfortunately loses functionality. The ultimate solution would be to use
svn itself as a distribution method but that's not an option.

Thanks again for your help - it was driving me crazy.

If anyone else wants a windows batch file to do this, the following
worked for me (with great help from sed, sort and uniq):


REM Location of sed, sort and uniq
SET TOOLS=d:\utils\unix\usr\local\wbin

REM SVN root
SET SVN=svn://localhost/myproject/trunk/public

REM Patch path
SET PATCH=.\temp

REM Working copy root
SET WC=d:\projects\web\myproject\public

REM Convert backslashes to double backslahes for quoted sed expression
SET WCQ=%WC:\=\\%

echo Creating changed files list
REM Remove lines without an filename extension (assumed to be directories)
REM Extract the root path from the filename
svn diff -r PREV:HEAD --summarize %WC% | %TOOLS%\sed -e "/[.]/!d" |
%TOOLS%\sed -e "s/^[AM].* %WCQ%//pi" | %TOOLS%\sort | %TOOLS%\uniq >

echo Creating directory listing
%TOOLS%\sed -e "s,[^\\]*$,,;s,\\$,,;s,^$,.," files.txt | %TOOLS%\sort |
%TOOLS%\uniq > directories.txt

echo Clearing patch directory
rmdir /q /s %PATCH%

echo Creating patch directories
REM Enable auto-creation of parent directories
FOR /F %%B in (directories.txt) do (
mkdir %PATCH%\%%B

echo Exporting changed files

FOR /F %%A in (files.txt) do (
REM Changes the backslashes to forward slashes for the svn:// url

REM Export the file from the repository to the patch directory
svn export %SVN%/%URL% %PATCH%\%%A


echo Cleaning up...
del files.txt
del directories.txt

echo Done.
