Recursively cleanup a working copy directory, finishing incomplete operations and removing locks (PECL svn:0.1-0.2)
bool svn_cleanup ( string workingdir )

Recursively cleanup working copy directory workingdir, finishing any incomplete operations and removing working copy locks. Use when a working copy is in limbo and needs to be usable again.



String path to local working directory to cleanup


Relative paths will be resolved as if the current working directory was the one that contains the PHP binary. To use the calling script's working directory, use realpath() or dirname(__FILE__).

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.



This function is EXPERIMENTAL. The behaviour of this function, the name of this function, and anything else documented about this function may change without notice in a future release of PHP. Use this function at your own risk.
