Re: Finding the revision of a deleted file.

It's always the way ....
I should have been a little more clearer about my requirements.

I have a file; fileName.txt
This file exists "somewhere" in the repository at a previous revision because it was deleted at sometime in the past.

So, I am unable to restrict the path that svn.log starts at.

I can't think of a way to do it other than the svn log method...
And the fact that Mr.Google has only revealed the svn log method, too - I assume there simply isn't a better method...
It just seems like there "should" be an easier method - so I figured I had better ask as opposed die wondering...
