In this post, I will show you how to enable CLI and run commands on the Windows operating system [ TortoiseSVN Command Line Interface ] for TortoiseSVN. Default settings, you can only use the Graphical User Interface (GUI), so you may have been surprised that the system did not recognise the svn command.

‘SVN’ Is Not Recognized As An Internal Or External Command, Operable Program Or Batch File.

It is necessary to install CLI (Command Line Interface) if you want to resolve the error: ‘svn’ is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

Adding CLI during installation -> TortoiseSVN Command Line Interface

Stop for a moment when installing TortoiseSVN on choosing features that will be installed by default. You should see that the command line client tool field is excluded from the installation.

How To Use Tortoise SVN Command Line Windows?

Please find the following useful commands. In short I described how to use TortoiseSVN via command line.

Tortoise SVN Command Line Checkout Example

On of the most command is TortoiseSVN Checkout. Please check the code snip how to checkout the SVN repository via TortoiseSVN command:

svn checkout [-depth ARG] [--ignore-externals] [-r rev] URL PATH

The depth combo box items relate to the -depth argument.
If Omit externals is checked, use the –ignore-externals switch.
If you are checking out a specific revision, specify that after the URL using -r switch.

Update

svn info URL_of_WC
svn update [-r rev] PATH

Updating multiple items is currently not an atomic operation in Subversion. So TortoiseSVN first finds the HEAD revision of the repository, and then updates all items to that particular revision number to avoid creating a mixed revision working copy.

If only one item is selected for updating or the selected items are not all from the same repository, TortoiseSVN just updates to HEAD.

No command line options are used here. Update to revision also implements the update command, but offers more options.

https://tortoisesvn.net/docs/release/TortoiseSVN_en/tsvn-cli-main.html

Update To Revision

svn info URL_of_WC
svn update [-r rev] [-depth ARG] [--ignore-externals] PATH

Commit

svn status -v PATH

svn add PATH...

svn commit -m "LogMessage" [-depth ARG] [--no-unlock] PATH...

In TortoiseSVN, the commit dialog uses several Subversion commands. The first stage is a status check which determines the items in your working copy which can potentially be committed. You can review the list, diff files against BASE and select the items you want to be included in the commit.

If Show unversioned files is checked, TortoiseSVN will also show all unversioned files and folders in the working copy hierarchy, taking account of the ignore rules. This particular feature has no direct equivalent in Subversion, as the svn status command does not descend into unversioned folders.

If you check any unversioned files and folders, those items will first be added to your working copy.

When you click on OK, the Subversion commit takes place. If you have left all the file selection checkboxes in their default state, TortoiseSVN uses a single recursive commit of the working copy. If you deselect some files, then a non-recursive commit (-N) must be used, and every path must be specified individually on the commit command line.

https://tortoisesvn.net/docs/release/TortoiseSVN_en/tsvn-cli-main.html

Diff

svn diff PATH

If you use Diff from the main context menu, you are diffing a modified file against its BASE revision. The output from the CLI command above also does this and produces output in unified-diff format. However, this is not what TortoiseSVN is using. TortoiseSVN uses TortoiseMerge (or a diff program of your choosing) to display differences visually between full-text files, so there is no direct CLI equivalent.

You can also diff any 2 files using TortoiseSVN, whether or not they are version controlled. TortoiseSVN just feeds the two files into the chosen diff program and lets it work out where the differences lie.

https://tortoisesvn.net/docs/release/TortoiseSVN_en/tsvn-cli-main.html

Show Log

svn log -v -r 0:N --limit 100 [--stop-on-copy] PATH

// OR

svn log -v -r M:N [--stop-on-copy] PATH

Check for Modifications

svn status -v PATH

// OR

svn status -u -v PATH

The initial status check looks only at your working copy. If you click on Check repository then the repository is also checked to see which files would be changed by an update, which requires the -u switch.

If Show unversioned files is checked, TortoiseSVN will also show all unversioned files and folders in the working copy hierarchy, taking account of the ignore rules. This particular feature has no direct equivalent in Subversion, as the svn status command does not descend into unversioned folders.
