yes, read it please. but sometimes an example over a concrete example
and need can be very educative. see below for a quick reply to your
quick questions.

before starting, it's much better to check you have no local changes.

assuming you are on the trunk directory ...

$ svn merge -c -3 <TRUNK_URL> .

please do notice the '-' and the '.'

again assuming you are on the trunk directory ...

$ svn merge -c 7 <BRANCH_URL> .

it's also possible to use -r instead of -c. in the first case -r 2:3,
in the second -r 6:7.

after either case, you may want to check the differences. no commit
will be made, you have to do it yourself.
