Hello everyone,

i got the problem, that i have to search for a file of a specific type( *.xxx ) within a massive 10 year wide svn history. I am not very familiar with the workings of svn. For the beginning, it would be enough to search over all repositories within the current state, and not in history depth. I think, something like this should be possible, because the TortoiseSVN Repobrowser is able to view the files in the current state, like a normal file browser.
I found various other Q&A-Threads concering to the same problem, but i seems all of them assume access to the svn server.

Also, i tried a couple of tools which were referenced in those Threads, but non of them seem to fit my needs. For example, "SvnQuery" and "SVN Search 1.3.0.". Both require me to specify the local path to the SVN repository. But i thought the repository lives at the server, and the client just got working copies?! But I might be wrong...

Another (secondary) question would be: Is it possible to display all CheckIn's/Commit's of a specific user for a year-old history? (Again just with client access.)
At the moment, i just execute the following command:

TortoiseProc.exe /command:log /path:"https://svn:9880/SvnRoot"

After this, i hit the "Next 100" button till i found what i am searching for; or my fingers rot off.

Can someone help me?

Yours sincerely,

A very interesting question, my 5.

You could check out the svn locally and search normally.
