Let’s say you just created a new Java project in Subversion. You now have an empty directory, and you want to create a directory for your source files. I like to follow Maven directory structure even if I’m not using Maven. Maven says my source files should be under the
src/main/java directory. Since my company is VegiBank.com and this is their foundation project, I want to create the directory
src/main/java/com/vegibank/foundation. I could do this:
$ svn mkdir src $ svn mkdir src/main $ svn mkdir src/main/java $ svn mkdir src/main/java/com $ svn mkdir src/main/java/com/vegibank $ svn mkdir src/main/java/com/vegibank/foundation
I have to first create the directory in order to create the subdirectory. However, with the
--parents option, I can replace all of those with a single command:
$ svn mkdir --parents src/main/java/com/vegibank/foundation
That makes the entire directory tree without me creating each single subdirectory one at a time.
mkdir -p for the functionality svn is mimicking.
svn cp foo bar/baz/foo
bar/baz do not exist then the copy will fail.
svn cp --parents foo bar/baz/foo
bar/baz do not exist then they’ll be created automatically.
