Detailed Description

Macro Definition Documentation

#define SVN_WC_ADM_DIR_NAME   ".svn"

The default name of the administrative subdirectory.

Ideally, this would be completely private to wc internals (in fact, it used to be that adm_subdir() in adm_files.c was the only function who knew the adm subdir's name). However, import wants to protect against importing administrative subdirs, so now the name is a matter of public record.

Deprecated:
Provided for backward compatibility with the 1.2 API.

Function Documentation

const char* svn_wc_get_adm_dir ( apr_pool_t *  pool)

Return the name of the administrative directory.

Use pool for any temporary allocations.

The returned pointer will refer to either a statically allocated string, or to a string allocated in pool.

Since
New in 1.3.
svn_boolean_t svn_wc_is_adm_dir ( const char *  name,
apr_pool_t *  pool 
)

Return TRUE if name is the name of the WC administrative directory.

Use pool for any temporary allocations. Only works with base directory names, not paths or URIs.

For compatibility, the default name (.svn) will always be treated as an admin dir name, even if the working copy is actually using an alternative name.

Since
New in 1.3.
svn_error_t* svn_wc_set_adm_dir ( const char *  name,
apr_pool_t *  pool 
)

Use name for the administrative directory in the working copy.

Use pool for any temporary allocations.

The list of valid names is limited. Currently only ".svn" (the default) and "_svn" are allowed.

Note
This function changes global (per-process) state and must be called in a single-threaded context during the initialization of a Subversion client.
