Re: How to find whether an subversion element is a directory or file

As you already stated, you can do an svn info on that file, and then
check the output. Using the --xml switch might make this a bit easier
for scripts.

Also, if you list a directory, and the file listed ends in a slash,
the file is a directory.

You can also try doing a "svn ls" on that file and see if the output
is the file name or a listing.

If you simply want a recursive "svn ls", use the -R switch. Most
people don't realize that.
