Subversion, Version Control Systems

Subversion Revert All

Working with Subversion on Ubuntu requires that you get to know actual svn commands as opposed to using GUI tools such as TortoiseSVN in Windows.

Normally svn help gives you a list of available commands. But recently I needed to revert all my local changes in my code and couldn’t figure out the command (or more correctly the switch) required to do this operation.

Then I came across this blog which has a combination of awk and svn revert which looks pretty cool. But the simpler more efficient solution as given by the comments in the post is

svn revert -R .

Note the period after “-R”

This worked for me!
