The Subversion Command-Line Client: svn

To use the command-line client, type svn, the subcommand you wish to use,[56] and any options or targets that you wish to operate on—the subcommand and the options need not appear in a specific order. For example, all of the following are valid ways to use svn status:

$ svn -v status
$ svn status -v 
$ svn status -v myfile

You can find many more examples of how to use most client commands in Chapter 2 and commands for managing properties in Properties.

[56] Well, you don’t need a subcommand to use the --version option, but we’ll get to that in just a minute.
