Re: Is there an equivalent to ~/.cvsrc in subversion?

I guess you can use .cvsrc to define command aliases. I never tried
it, but normally the .cvsrc file is used to define standard flags for
the cvs commands.

No, there is no similar mechanism in Subversion. However, there are
plenty of other mechanisms for creating Subversion command aliases.
For example, in most Unix shells, you can define your own alias to any
command. And, of course, you could define your own batch files or
shell scripts to do the same.

The main reason people used .cvsrc was to get rid of the extremely
verbose CVS output and to define the cvs update command to
automatically create and remove folders. Since Subversion is far from
verbose as CVS, and it automatically adds and removes folders on
updates, the reason for using a .cvsrc is not as great.

There is a lot less pressure on Subversion to do this because of the
wide variety of Subversion clients out there. I really know very few
people who use the "svn" commands. Most use the Eclipse integration or
something like TortoiseSVN.
