A Unix Command to Recursively Delete all .svn Folders

Steve Neal Development, Tool support 5 Comments

I recently needed to check out a project from Subversion and then delete all of the .svn files from the project directories. Google found me a few different ways to do this, but none of them seemed to deal with a case where some of the directory and file names had spaces or quotes in them – as mine did. After a little experimenting, I figured out how some simple Unix commands that could be combined using pipes to do this.

In this post I’ll explain how inner classes work with the help of an example that illustrates their most common use: Swing GUI programming.
