Name

svn cleanup — Recursively clean up the working copy

Synopsis

svn cleanup [PATH...]

Description

Recursively clean up the working copy, removing working copy locks and resuming unfinished operations. If you ever get a working copy locked error, run this command to remove stale locks and get your working copy into a usable state again.

If, for some reason, an svn update fails due to a problem running an external diff program (e.g., user input or network failure), pass the --diff3-cmd to allow the cleanup process to complete any required merging using your external diff program. You can also specify any configuration directory with the --config-dir option, but you should need these options extremely infrequently.

Options

Examples

Well, there's not much to the examples here, as svn cleanup generates no output. If you pass no PATH, then . is used:

$ svn cleanup
$ svn cleanup /var/svn/working-copy
