Synopsis

svn unlock TARGET...

Description

Unlock each TARGET. If any TARGET is locked by another user or no valid lock token exists in the working copy, print a warning and continue unlocking the rest of the TARGETs. Use --force to break a lock belonging to another user or working copy.

Examples

Unlock two files in your working copy:

$ svn unlock tree.jpg house.jpg
'tree.jpg' unlocked.
'house.jpg' unlocked.

Unlock a file in your working copy that is currently locked by another user:

$ svn unlock tree.jpg
svn: E195013: 'tree.jpg' is not locked in this working copy
$ svn unlock --force tree.jpg
'tree.jpg' unlocked.

Unlock a file without a working copy:

$ svn unlock http://svn.red-bean.com/repos/test/tree.jpg
'tree.jpg unlocked.
