Version Control with Subversion - svn update

Name

svn update — Update your working copy.

Synopsis

svn update [PATH...]

Description

svn update brings changes from the repository into your working copy. If no revision given, it brings your working copy up-to-date with the HEAD revision. Otherwise, it synchronizes the working copy to the revision given by the --revision switch. As part of the synchronization, svn update also removes any stale locks found in the working copy.

For each updated item a line will start with a character reporting the action taken. These characters have the following meaning:

A

Added

D

Deleted

U

Updated

C

Conflict

G

Merged

A character in the first column signifies an update to the actual file, while updates to the file's properties are shown in the second column.

Alternate Names

up

Accesses Repository

Switches

--revision (-r) REV
--non-recursive (-N)
--quiet (-q)
--diff3-cmd CMD
--username USER
--password PASS
--no-auth-cache
--non-interactive
--config-dir DIR
--ignore-externals

Examples

Pick up repository changes that have happened since your last update:

$ svn update
A  newdir/toggle.c
A  newdir/disclose.c
A  newdir/launch.c
D  newdir/README
Updated to revision 32.

You can also update your working copy to an older revision (Subversion doesn't have the concept of “sticky” files like CVS does; see Appendix A, Subversion for CVS Users ):

$ svn update -r30
A  newdir/README
D  newdir/toggle.c
D  newdir/disclose.c
D  newdir/launch.c
U  foo.c
Updated to revision 30.

Tip

If you want to examine an older revision of a single file, you may want to use svn cat .
