Single file merge in Subversion


I'm using Subversion 1.5 and have a single file in a branch that I want to merge into another branch. When I do a svn merge http://path/to/file I get an error,

Cannot replace a directory from with .

Does this just mean that Subversion can't do this?

Best Solution

Try specifying the path to the local file as well.

For example,

svn merge -r1234:1235 svn://your_svn_url/to/file ./local_file
