Switch an existing working copy directory to a different repository location.

This is normally used to switch a working copy directory over to another line of development, such as a branch or a tag. Switching an existing working copy directory is more efficient than checking out url from scratch.

Parameters
[out]result_revIf non-NULL, the value of the revision to which the working copy was actually switched.
[in]pathThe directory to be switched. This need not be the root of a working copy.
[in]urlThe repository URL to switch to.
[in]peg_revisionThe peg revision.
[in]revisionThe operative revision.
[in]depthThe depth of the operation. If svn_depth_infinity, switch fully recursively. Else if svn_depth_immediates, switch path and its file children (if any), and switch subdirectories but do not update them. Else if svn_depth_files, switch just file children, ignoring subdirectories completely. Else if svn_depth_empty, switch just path and touch nothing underneath it.
[in]depth_is_stickyIf TRUE, and depth is not svn_depth_unknown, then in addition to switching path, also set its sticky ambient depth value to depth.
[in]ignore_externalsIf TRUE, don't process externals definitions as part of this operation.
[in]allow_unver_obstructionsIf TRUE, then tolerate existing unversioned items that obstruct incoming paths. Only obstructions of the same type (file or dir) as the added item are tolerated. The text of obstructing files is left as-is, effectively treating it as a user modification after the checkout. Working properties of obstructing items are set equal to the base properties.
If FALSE, then abort if there are any unversioned obstructing items.
[in]ignore_ancestryIf FALSE, then verify that the file or directory at path shares some common version control ancestry with the switch URL location (represented by the combination of url, peg_revision, and revision), and returning SVN_ERR_CLIENT_UNRELATED_RESOURCES if they do not. If TRUE, no such sanity checks are performed.
[in]ctxThe standard client context, used for authentication and notification. The notifier is invoked for paths affected by the switch, and also for files which may be restored from the pristine store after being previously removed from the working copy.
[in]poolUsed for any temporary allocation.
Returns
A pointer to an svn_error_t of the type (this list is not exhaustive):
SVN_ERR_CLIENT_BAD_REVISION if revision is not one of svn_opt_revision_number, svn_opt_revision_head, or svn_opt_revision_date.
If no error occurred, return SVN_NO_ERROR.
Since
New in 1.7.
