    Copy files from a SVN repository

    hi all,

    today, i tried to create a little bashscript, which copys the files form ~/dev/trunk to ~/hsdev but with a couple of rules:
    - Folder install and his files mustn't copied
    - file lib/ mustn't copied
    - All folders with the name .svn and their files mustn't copied

    Now i've these problemes:
    - the rule not to copy the folder .svn doesn't work
    - the content of the folder lang/ isn't copied to ~/hsdev/lang but to ~/hsdev/

    my script:

    find dev/trunk \
      -not -regex ".*/install" \
      -not -regex ".*/lib/*" \
      -not -regex ".*/files.*" \
      -not -regex ".*/\.svn/.*" \
      -exec cp -Ruv --target-directory=hsdev/ \{\} \;
    does anyone know a solution?

    Hi, mix-.

    If you have not already solved this, give a look at "svn export": svn help export. It seems as if you don't want the meta files, which is essentially what export does ... cheers, drl
