svn propedit (pedit, pe) — Edit the property of one or more items under version control. See svn propset (pset, ps) later in this chapter.
Edit one or more properties using your favorite
editor. The first form edits versioned properties in
your working copy, and the second edits unversioned
remote properties on a repository revision
TARGET determines only which
repository to access).
svn propedit makes it easy to modify properties that have multiple values:
$ svn propedit svn:keywords foo.c # svn will open in your favorite text editor a temporary file # containing the current contents of the svn:keywords property. You # can add multiple values to a property easily here by entering one # value per line. When you save the temporary file and exit, # Subversion will re-read the temporary file and use its updated # contents as the new value of the property. Set new value for property 'svn:keywords' on 'foo.c' $
