RE: making hotfix

1) I am running svn diff and put the output within a log file.
2) I am not replacing the files within the SVN Tag folders. I replace
files on the working directory from Tagged revision to the HEAD
I was looking for the command line that will run this replace.

You mean you want to replace files inside the tagged directory?
That's generally considered bad practice. You should consider
using a "release branch" for your releases instead of modying tags.
This will allow you to apply fixes to your releases without
changing tags. Please read this:
Take note of this section in particular:

Hope this helps,
