Hi. Sorry, perhaps i didn't make myself clear, i've been trying to svn diff
against my modified copy of sapi_voice.vbs. I'm not trying to svn diff
against the renamed version of sapi_voice.vbs, however i can only create
the patch if i do a checkout of an unmodified copy, and then diff between a
renamed version and the unmodified version, in other words between 2 files.
if i directly try to svn diff between my modified but not renamed
sapi_voice.vbs and svn, all it does is output the blank patches. So
obviously i'd like to work out why this isn't working, as sapi_voice.vbs is
under svn control.
Please correct me if I am wrong, maybe I have got the wrong end of the stick
or something, but if you try to diff between svn and your local modified
code, using the svn diff command, is that command meant to generate a patch
by comparing your local modified code, and what is present on the actual

Thanks for your help.
