RE: Every Version of Every File in a Repository

You know, the files aren't really stored as files per say. Also, if using correct ACLs in your repository there is no way any of these files can be "executed".

I assume by "scan" you are talking about virus scanning. I would question the need to do this. Yea, I know... but still, many request come from a lack of understanding of a technology.

Subject: Every Version of Every File in a Repository

Is there a way to check out every version of a file in a repository? We just had a requirement levied to perform a scan of every file in a repository. The scan tool must have each file in a stand-alone format. Thus, I need a way to extract every version of every file within a repository.

Aside from the brute-force method of checking out the entire repository starting at revision 1 , performing a scan, updating to the next revision, and repeating until I reach the head, I don't know of a way to do this.
