I was just looking up branching and merging in the online svnbook, and I
found some typos (incorrect command options).
In chapter 4, Branching and Merging > Copying Changes Between Branches >
Copying Specific Changes, I believe that incorrect syntax is used several
times in the examples.
svn diff -c 344 ...
svn merge -c 344 ...
Shouldn't those be
svn diff -r 344 ...
svn merge -r 344 ...
In fact, shouldn't the '-r 344' be '-r 340:344' or something similar? My
testing shows that it wants a range for the 'merge -r' pair.
Farther down, in "Previewing Merges", the '-c' appears again.
