Version Control with Subversion - svn cleanup

Name

svn cleanup — Recursively clean up the working copy.

Synopsis

svn cleanup [PATH...]

Description

Recursively clean up the working copy, removing locks resuming unfinished operations. If you ever get a “working copy locked” error, run this command to remove stale locks and get your working copy into a usable state again.

If, for some reason, an svn update fails due to a problem running an external diff program (e.g. user input or network failure), pass the --diff3-cmd to allow cleanup to complete any merging with your external diff program. You can also specify any configuration directory with the --config-dir switch, but you should need these switches extremely infrequently.

Alternate Names

None

Changes

Working copy

Accesses Repository

No

Switches

--diff3-cmd CMD
--config-dir DIR

Examples

Well, there's not much to the examples here as svn cleanup generates no output. If you pass no PATH , “ . ” is used.

$ svn cleanup

$ svn cleanup /path/to/working-copy
