Re: hook script basics

Hi Ryan,

In the post-commit file, I only have del f:\temp\foo

... which worked upon committing a file.

I then placed;

svn info f:\jobs\cooljobs >> c:\temp\foo.txt

.. and it worked.

Why isn't svn update working while as a post hook? i did choose to
cache creds to simplify things. It does work as a stand alone batch
file.
