RE: svn status: filter on file extension

Hi
Thanks for the reply.

BTW, a good alternative to grep in Windows is findstr

The following works well (to only list *.kb files)

Svn status --verbose --show-updates |findstr /E .kb

Cheers
Niel

Actually, the amount of data currently passed over the network for 'svn
status -u' is proportional to the amount of *change* in the tree since
the working copy was last updated, not to the size of the tree itself,
and is optimized for directory comparisons as opposed to comparisons of
individual file revisions.h

Yeah, this is pretty much where 'grep' comes into the picture. :-)
