RE: file:/// protocol

I wouldn't be surprised if what happens is it starts at usr and scans for the repository files there, then tries /usr/local and so on until it finds the root, and then it looks into the repo.


From: David Aldrich [mailto:david.aldrich@t-modus.nec.co.uk]

I would like to understand how a file:/// url works. Consider a command such as:
svn co file:///usr/local/svn-repos/sesame/trunk sesame
here /usr/local/svn-repos is an actual path in the operating system's file system. But /sesame/trunk is a path within Subversion's file system. So the above url does not point to a literal file.
What magic does file:/// perform to make this work?
Just curious.
