Name

svn export — Export a clean directory tree.

Synopsis

svn export [-r REV] URL[@PEGREV] [PATH]

svn export [-r REV] PATH1[@PEGREV] [PATH2]

Description

The first form exports a clean directory tree from the repository specified by URL—at revision REV if it is given; otherwise, at HEAD, into PATH. If PATH is omitted, the last component of the URL is used for the local directory name.

The second form exports a clean directory tree from the working copy specified by PATH1 into PATH2. All local changes will be preserved, but files not under version control will not be copied.

Examples

Export from your working copy (doesn't print every file and directory):

$ svn export a-wc my-export
Export complete.

Export directly from the repository (prints every file and directory):

$ svn export file:///var/svn/repos my-export
A    my-export/test
A    my-export/quiz
…
Exported revision 15.

When rolling operating-system-specific release packages, it can be useful to export a tree that uses a specific EOL character for line endings. The --native-eol option will do this, but it affects only files that have svn:eol-style = native properties attached to them. For example, to export a tree with all CRLF line endings (possibly for a Windows .zip file distribution):

$ svn export file:///var/svn/repos my-export --native-eol CRLF
A    my-export/test
A    my-export/quiz
…
Exported revision 15.

You can specify LR, CR, or CRLF as a line-ending type with the --native-eol option.
