Version Control with Subversion - svn revert

Name

svn revert — Undo all local edits.

Synopsis

svn revert PATH...

Description

Reverts any local changes to a file or directory and resolves any conflicted states. svn revert will not only revert the contents of an item in your working copy, but also any property changes. Finally, you can use it to undo any scheduling operations that you may have done (e.g. files scheduled for addition or deletion can be “unscheduled”).

Alternate Names

None

Changes

Working copy

Accesses Repository

No

Switches

--targets FILENAME
--recursive (-R)
--quiet (-q)
--config-dir DIR

Examples

Discard changes to a file:

$ svn revert foo.c
Reverted foo.c

If you want to revert a whole directory of files, use the --recursive flag:

$ svn revert --recursive .
Reverted newdir/afile
Reverted foo.c
Reverted bar.txt

Lastly, you can undo any scheduling operations:

$ svn add mistake.txt whoops
A         mistake.txt
A         whoops
A         whoops/oopsie.c

$ svn revert mistake.txt whoops
Reverted mistake.txt
Reverted whoops

$ svn status
?      mistake.txt
?      whoops

Note

If you provide no targets to svn revert , it will do nothing—to protect you from accidentally losing changes in your working copy, svn revert requires you to provide at least one target.
