Re: Why is there no "find" command in Subversion ?

svn ls -R http://subversion/url | grep "$find_this_file"

If the file has been deleted, you'll have to search the logs:

svn log -v -rHEAD:1 http://subversion/url | grep "$find_this_file"

I use the "less" command instead of grep because it allows me to go back and
forth through the output. I can quickly find the file, then go back up and
see who removed it and why.

This sounds slow, but it's actually pretty quick.
