svn resolve — Resolve conflicts on working copy files or directories.


svn resolve PATH...


Resolve conflicted state on working copy files or directories. This routine does not semantically resolve conflict markers; however, it replaces PATH with the version specified by the --accept argument and then removes conflict-related artifact files. This allows PATH to be committed again—that is, it tells Subversion that the conflicts have been resolved.

See the section called “Resolve Any Conflicts” for an in-depth look at resolving conflicts.



Here's an example where, after a postponed conflict resolution during update, svn resolve replaces the all conflicts in file foo.c with your edits:

$ svn update
Updating '.':
Conflict discovered in 'foo.c'.
Select: (p) postpone, (df) diff-full, (e) edit,
        (mc) mine-conflict, (tc) theirs-conflict,
        (s) show all options: p
C    foo.c
Updated to revision 5.
Summary of conflicts:
  Text conflicts: 1
$ svn resolve --accept mine-full foo.c
Resolved conflicted state of 'foo.c'
