Thanks for the info, however this is the really strange thing, if i use the
commands you listed above, all cygwin does is output empty files.
However if i update the file, and then move it to another place, rename it,
and then check out an unaltered copy from svn, and do a diff using the
command to make a diff of 2 files, it works. However then of course the
patch looks weird because it made the diff from a file that isn't in svn.
Does anyone have any ideas, why what i've been putting in and what thomas
has suggested using the command to diff from svn doesn't work, and yet if I
diff between 2 files, it works?
this is the command I was able to make work,
diff -u sapi_voice.vbs voice.vbs
the file names are obviously in one case the orriginal svn copy of
sapi_voice.vbs, and the copy I had to rename so they could both be in the
same folder with the renamed file containing my changes.
Thanks for your help.
