NAME
       SVN::Client - Subversion client functions

SYNOPSIS
           use SVN::Client;
           my $ctx = new SVN::Client(
                     auth => [SVN::Client::get_simple_provider(),
                     SVN::Client::get_simple_prompt_provider(\&simple_prompt,2),
                     SVN::Client::get_username_provider()]
                     );

           $ctx->cat (\*STDOUT, 'http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk/README',
                      'HEAD');

           sub simple_prompt {
             my $cred = shift;
             my $realm = shift;
             my $default_username = shift;
             my $may_save = shift;
             my $pool = shift;

             print "Enter authentication info for realm: $realm\n";
             print "Username: ";
             my $username = <>;
             chomp($username);
             $cred->username($username);
             print "Password: ";
             my $password = <>;
             chomp($password);
             $cred->password($password);
           }

DESCRIPTION
       SVN::Client wraps the highest level of functions provided by subversion
       to accomplish specific tasks in an object oriented API.  Methods are
       similar to the functions provided by the C API and as such the
       documentation for it may be helpful in understanding this interface.

       There are a few notable differences from the C API.  Most C function
       calls take a svn_client_ctx_t pointer as the next to last parameter.
       The Perl method calls take a SVN::Client object as the first parameter.
       This allows method call invocation of the methods to be possible.  For
       example, the following are equivalent:

         SVN::Client::add($ctx,$path, $recursive, $pool);
         $ctx->add($path, $recursive, $pool);

       Many of the C API calls also take a apr_pool_t pointer as their last
       argument.  The Perl bindings generally deal with this for you and you
       do not need to pass a pool parameter.  However, you may still pass a
       pool parameter as the last parameter to override the automatic handling
       of this for you.

       Users of this interface should not directly manipulate the underlying
       hash values but should use the respective attribute methods.  Many of
       these attribute methods do other things, especially when setting an
       attribute, besides simply manipulating the value in the hash.

PARAMETER NOTES
       The client methods described below take a variety of parameters.  Many
       of them are similar.  Methods accepting parameters named below will
       follow the rules below or will be noted otherwise in the method
       description.

       $ctx
           An SVN::Client object that you get from the constructor.

       $url
           This is a URL to a subversion repository.

       $path
           This is a path to a file or directory on the local file system.

       $paths
           This argument can either be a single path to a file or directory on
           the local file system, or it can be a reference to an array of
           files or directories on the local file system.

       $target
           This is a path to a file or directory in a working copy or a URL to
           a file or directory in a subversion repository.

       $targets
           This argument can either be a single $target (as defined above) or
           a reference to an array of them.

       $revision
           This specifies a revision in the subversion repository.  You can
           specify a revision in several ways.  The easiest and most obvious
           is to directly provide the revision number.  You may also use the
           strings (aka revision keywords) 'HEAD', 'BASE', 'COMMITTED', and
           'PREV' which have the same meanings as in the command line client.
           When referencing a working copy you can use the string 'WORKING" to
           reference the BASE plus any local modifications.  undef may be used
           to specify an unspecified revision.  Finally you may pass a date by
           specifying the date inside curly braces '{}'.  The date formats
           accepted are the same as the command line client accepts.

       $recursive $nonrecursive.
           A boolean parameter that specifies if the action should follow
           directories.  It should only be 1 or 0.  $recursive means, 1 means
           to descend into directories, 0 means not to.  $nonrecursive has the
           inverse meaning.

       $pool
           Pool is always an option parameter.  If you wish to pass a pool
           parameter it should be a SVN::Pool or an apr_pool_t object.

METHODS
       The following methods are available:

       $ctx = SVN::Client->new( %options );
           This class method constructs a new "SVN::Client" object and returns
           a reference to it.

           Key/value pair arguments may be provided to set up the initial
           state of the user agent.  The following methods correspond to
           attribute methods described below:

               KEY                    DEFAULT
               ----------             ----------------------------------------
               auth                   auth_baton initiated with providers that
                                      read cached authentication options from
                                      the subversion config only.

               cancel                 undef

               config                 Hash containing the config from the
                                      default subversion config file location.

               log_msg                undef

               notify                 undef

               pool                   A new pool is created for the context.

       $ctx->add($path, $recursive, $pool);
           Schedule a working copy $path for addition to the repository.

           $path's parent must be under revision control already, but $path is
           not.  If $recursive is set, then assuming $path is a directory, all
           of its contents will be scheduled for addition as well.

           Calls the notify callback for each added item.

           Important: this is a scheduling operation.  No changes will happen
           to the repository until a commit occurs.  This scheduling can be
           removed with $ctx->revert().

           No return.

       $ctx->blame($target, $start, $end, \&receiver, $pool);
           Invoke \&receiver subroutine on each line-blame item associated
           with revision $end of $target, using $start as the default source
           of all blame.

           An Error will be raised if either $start or $end is undef.

           No return.

           The blame receiver subroutine receives the following arguments:
           $line_no, $revision, $author, $date, $line, $pool

           $line_no is the line number of the file (starting with 0).  The
           line was last changed in revision number $revision by $author on
           $date and the contents were $line.

           The blame receiver subroutine can return an svn_error_t object to
           return an error.  All other returns will be ignored.  You can
           create an svn_error_t object with SVN::Error::create().

       $ctx->cat(\*FILEHANDLE, $target, $revision, $pool);
           Outputs the content of the file identified by $target and $revision
           to the FILEHANDLE.  FILEHANDLE is a reference to a filehandle.

           If $target is not a local path and if $revision is 'PREV' (or some
           other kind that requires a local path), then an error will be
           raised, because the desired revision can not be determined.

       $ctx->checkout($url, $path, $revision, $recursive, $pool);
           Checkout a working copy of $url at $revision using $path as the
           root directory of the newly checked out working copy.

           $revision must be a number, 'HEAD', or a date.  If $revision does
           not meet these requirements the $SVN::Error::CLIENT_BAD_REVISION is
           raised.

           Returns the value of the revision actually checked out of the
           repository.

       $ctx->cleanup($dir, $pool);
           Recursively cleanup a working copy directory, $dir, finishing any
           incomplete operations, removing lockfiles, etc.

       $ctx->commit($targets, $nonrecursive, $pool);
           Commit files or directories referenced by target.  Will use the
           log_msg callback to obtain the log message for the commit.

           If $targets contains no paths (zero elements), then does nothing
           and immediately returns without error.

           Calls the notify callback as the commit progresses with any of the
           following actions: $SVN::Wc::Notify::Action::commit_modified,
           $SVN::Wc::Notify::Action::commit_added,
           $SVN::Wc::Notify::Action::commit_deleted,
           $SVN::Wc::Notify::Action::commit_replaced,
           $SVN::Wc::Notify::Action::commit_postfix_txdelta.

           Use $nonrecursive to indicate that subdirectories of directory
           targets should be ignored.

           Returns a svn_client_commit_info_t object.  If the revision member
           of the commit information object is $SVN::Core::INVALID_REVNUM and
           no error was raised, then the commit was a no-op; nothing needed to
           be committed.

       $ctx->copy($src_target, $src_revision, $dst_target, $pool);
           Copies $src_target to $dst_target.

           $src_target must be a file or directory under version control, or
           the URL of a versioned item in the repository.  If $src_target is a
           URL, $src_revision is used to choose the revision from which to
           copy the $src_target.  $dst_path must be a file or directory under
           version control, or a repository URL, existing or not.

           If $dst_target is a URL, immediately attempt to commit the copy
           action to the repository.  The log_msg callback will be called to
           query for a commit log message.  If the commit succeeds, return a
           svn_client_commit_info_t object.

           If $dst_target is not a URL, then this is just a variant of
           $ctx->add(), where the $dst_path items are scheduled for addition
           as copies.  No changes will happen to the repository until a commit
           occurs.  This scheduling can be removed with $ctx->revert().  undef
           will be returned in this case.

           Calls the notify callback for each item added at the new location,
           passing the new, relative path of the added item.

       $ctx->delete($targets, $force, $pool);
           Delete items from a repository or working copy.

           If the paths in $targets are URLs, immediately attempt to commit a
           deletion of the URLs from the repository.  The log_msg callback
           will be called to query for a commit log message.  If the commit
           succeeds, return a svn_client_commit_info_t object.  Every path
           must belong to the same repository.

           Else, schedule the working copy paths in $targets for removal from
           the repository.  Each path's parent must be under revision control.
           This is just a scheduling operation.  No changes will happen to the
           repository until a commit occurs.  This scheduling can be removed
           with $ctx->revert().  If a path is a file it is immediately removed
           from the working copy.  If the path is a directory it will remain
           in the working copy but all the files, and all unversioned items it
           contains will be removed.  If $force is not set then this operation
           will fail if any path contains locally modified and/or unversioned
           items.  If $force is set such items will be deleted.

           The notify callback is called for each item deleted with the path
           of the deleted item.

           Has no return.

       $ctx->diff($diff_options, $target1, $revision1, $target2, $revision2,
       $recursive, $ignore_ancestry, $no_diff_deleted, $outfile, $errfile,
       $pool);
           Produces diff output which describes the delta between $target1 at
           $revision1 and $target2 at $revision2.  They both must represent
           the same node type (i.e. they most both be directories or files).
           The revisions must not be undef.

           Prints the output of the diff to the filename or filehandle passed
           as $outfile, and any errors to the filename or filehandle passed as
           $errfile.

           Use $ignore_ancestry to control whether or not items being diffed
           will be checked for relatedness first.  Unrelated items are
           typically transmitted to the editor as a deletion of one thing and
           the addition of another, but if this flag is true, unrelated items
           will be diffed as if they were related.

           If $no_diff_deleted is true, then no diff output will be generated
           on deleted files.

           $diff_options is a reference to an array of additional arguments to
           pass to diff process invoked to compare files.  You'll usually just
           want to use [] to pass an empty array to return a unified context
           diff (like `diff -u`).

           Has no return.

       $ctx->export($from, $to, $revision, $force, $pool);
           Export the contents of either a subversion repository or a
           subversion working copy into a 'clean' directory (meaning a
           directory with no administrative directories).

           $from is either the path to the working copy on disk, or a URL to
           the repository you wish to export.

           $to is the path to the directory where you wish to create the
           exported tree.

           $revision is the revision that should be exported, which is only
           used when exporting from a repository.  It may be undef otherwise.

           The notify callback will be called for the items exported.

           Returns the value of the revision actually exported or
           $SVN::Core::INVALID_REVNUM for local exports.

       $ctx->import($path, $url, $nonrecursive, $pool);
           Import file or directory $path into repository directory $url at
           head.

           If some components of $url do not exist then create parent
           directories as necessary.

           If $path is a directory, the contents of that directory are
           imported directly into the directory identified by $url.  Note that
           the directory $path itself is not imported; that is, the basename
           of $path is not part of the import.

           If $path is a file, then the dirname of $url is the directory
           receiving the import.  The basename of $url is the filename in the
           repository.  In this case if $url already exists, raise an error.

           The notify callback (if defined) will be called as the import
           progresses, with any of the following actions:
           $SVN::Wc::Notify::Action::commit_added,
           $SVN::Wc::Notify::Action::commit_postfix_txdelta.

           Use $nonrecursive to indicate that imported directories should not
           recurse into any subdirectories they may have.

           Uses the log_msg callback to determine the log message for the
           commit when one is needed.

           Returns a svn_client_commit_info_t object.

       $ctx->log($targets, $start, $end, $discover_changed_paths,
       $strict_node_history, \&log_receiver, $pool);
           Invoke the log_receiver subroutine on each log_message from $start
           to $end in turn, inclusive (but will never invoke receiver on a
           given log message more than once).

           $targets is a reference to an array containing all the paths or
           URLs for which the log messages are desired.  The log_receiver is
           only invoked on messages whose revisions involved a change to some
           path in $targets.

           If $discover_changed_paths is set, then the changed_paths argument
           to the log_receiver routine will be passed on each invocation.

           If $strict_node_history is set, copy history (if any exists) will
           not be traversed while harvesting revision logs for each target.

           If $start or $end is undef the arp_err code will be set to:
           $SVN::Error::CLIENT_BAD_REVISION.

           Special case for repositories at revision 0:

           If $start is 'HEAD' and $end is 1, then handle an empty (no
           revisions) repository specially: instead of erroring because
           requested revision 1 when the highest revision is 0, just invoke
           $log_receiver on revision 0, passing undef to changed paths and
           empty strings for the author and date.  This is because that
           particular combination of $start and $end usually indicates the
           common case of log invocation; the user wants to see all log
           messages from youngest to oldest, where the oldest commit is
           revision 1.  That works fine, except there are no commits in the
           repository, hence this special case.

           Calls the notify subroutine with a $SVN::Wc::Notify::Action::skip
           signal on any unversioned targets.

           The log_receiver takes the following arguments: $changed_paths,
           $revision, $author, $date, $message, $pool

           It is called once for each log $message from the $revision on $date
           by $author.  $author, $date or $message may be undef.

           If $changed_paths is defined it references a hash with the keys
           every path committed in $revision; the values are
           svn_log_changed_path_t objects.

       $ctx->ls($target, $revision, $recursive, $pool);
           Returns a hash of svn_dirent_t objects for $target at $revision.

           If $target is a directory, returns entries for all of the
           directories' contents.  If $recursive is true, it will recurse
           subdirectories in $target.

           If $target is a file only return an entry for the file.

           If $target is non-existent, raises the $SVN::Error::FS_NOT_FOUND
           error.

       $ctx->merge($src1, $rev1, $src2, $rev2, $target_wcpath, $recursive,
       $ignore_ancestry, $force, $dry_run, $pool);
           Merge changes from $src1/$rev1 to $src2/$rev2 into the working-copy
           path $target_wcpath.

           $src1 and $src2 are either URLs that refer to entries in the
           repository, or paths to entries in the working copy.

           By 'merging', we mean: apply file differences and schedule
           additions & deletions when appropriate.

           $src1 and $src2 must both represent the same node kind; that is, if
           $src1 is a directory, $src2 must also be, and if $src1 is a file,
           $src2 must also be.

           If either $rev1 or $rev2 is undef raises the
           $SVN::Error::CLIENT_BAD_REVISION error.

           If $recursive is true (and the URLs are directories), apply changes
           recursively; otherwise, only apply changes in the current
           directory.

           Use $ignore_ancestry to control whether or not items being diffed
           will be checked for relatedness first.  Unrelated items are
           typically transmitted to the editor as a deletion of one thing and
           the addition of another, but if this flag is true, unrelated items
           will be diffed as if they were related.

           If $force is not set and the merge involves deleting locally
           modified or unversioned items the operation will raise an error.
           If $force is set such items will be deleted.

           Calls the notify callback once for each merged target, passing the
           targets local path.

           If $dry_run is true the merge is carried out, and the full
           notification feedback is provided, but the working copy is not
           modified.

           Has no return.

       $ctx->mkdir($targets, $pool);
           Create a directory, either in a repository or a working copy.

           If $targets contains URLs, immediately attempts to commit the
           creation of the directories in $targets in the repository.  Returns
           a svn_client_commit_info_t object.

           Else, create the directories on disk, and attempt to schedule them
           for addition.  In this case returns undef.

           Calls the notify callback when the directory has been created
           (successfully) in the working copy, with the path of the new
           directory.  Note this is only called for items added to the working
           copy.

       $ctx->move($src_path, $src_revision, $dst_path, $force, $pool);
           Move $src_path to $dst_path.

           $src_path must be a file or directory under version control, or the
           URL of a versioned item in the repository.

           If $src_path is a repository URL:

           * $dst_path must also be a repository URL (existent or not).

           * $src_revision is used to choose the revision from which to copy
           the $src_path.

           * The log_msg callback will be called for the commit log message.

           * The move operation will be immediately committed.  If the commit
           succeeds, returns a svn_client_commit_info_t object.

           If $src_path is a working copy path

           * $dst_path must also be a working copy path (existent or not).

           * $src_revision is ignored and may be undef.  The log_msg callback
           will not be called.

           * This is a scheduling operation.  No changes will happen to the
           repository until a commit occurs.  This scheduling can be removed
           with $ctx->revert().  If $src_path is a file it is removed from the
           working copy immediately.  If $src_path is a directory it will
           remain in the working copy but all files, and unversioned items, it
           contains will be removed.

           * If $src_path contains locally modified and/or unversioned items
           and $force is not set, the copy will raise an error.  If $force is
           set such items will be removed.

           The notify callback will be called twice for each item moved, once
           to indicate the deletion of the moved node, and once to indicate
           the addition of the new location of the node.

       $ctx->propget($propname, $target, $revision, $recursive, $pool);
           Returns a reference to a hash containing paths or URLs, prefixed by
           $target (a working copy or URL), of items for which the property
           $propname is set, and whose values represent the property value for
           $propname at that path.

       $ctx->proplist($target, $revision, $recursive, $pool);
           Returns a reference to an array of svn_client_proplist_item_t
           objects.

           For each item the node_name member of the proplist_item object
           contains the name relative to the same base as $target.

           If $revision is undef, then get properties from the working copy,
           if $target is a working copy, or from the repository head if
           $target is a URL.  Else get the properties as of $revision.

           If $recursive is false, or $target is a file, the returned array
           will only contain a single element.  Otherwise, it will contain one
           entry for each versioned entry below (and including) $target.

           If $target is not found, raises the $SVN::Error::ENTRY_NOT_FOUND
           error.

       $ctx->propset($propname, $propval, $target, $recursive, $pool);
           Set $propname to $propval on $target (a working copy or URL path).

           If $recursive is true, then $propname will be set recursively on
           $target and all children.  If $recursive is false, and $target is a
           directory, $propname will be set on only $target.

           A $propval of undef will delete the property.

           If $propname is an svn-controlled property (i.e. prefixed with
           svn:), then the caller is responsible for ensuring that $propval is
           UTF8-encoded and uses LF line-endings.

       $ctx->relocate($dir, $from, $to, $recursive, $pool);
           Modify a working copy directory $dir, changing any repository URLs
           that begin with $from to begin with $to instead, recursing into
           subdirectories if $recursive is true.

           Has no return.

       $ctx->resolved($path, $recursive, $pool);
           Removed the 'conflicted' state on a working copy path.

           This will not semantically resolve conflicts; it just allows $path
           to be committed in the future.  The implementation details are
           opaque.  If $recursive is set, recurse below $path, looking for
           conflicts to resolve.

           If $path is not in a state of conflict to begin with, do nothing.

           If $path's conflict state is removed, call the notify callback with
           the $path.

       $ctx->revert($paths, $recursive, $pool);
           Restore the pristine version of a working copy $paths, effectively
           undoing any local mods.

           For each path in $paths, if it is a directory and $recursive is
           true, this will be a recursive operation.

       $ctx->revprop_get($propname, $url, $revision, $pool);
           Returns two values, the first of which is the value of $propname on
           revision $revision in the repository represented by $url.  The
           second value is the actual revision queried.

           Note that unlike its cousin $ctx->propget(), this routine doesn't
           affect working copy at all; it's a pure network operation that
           queries an unversioned property attached to a revision.  This can
           be used to query log messages, dates, authors, and the like.

       $ctx->revprop_list($url, $revision, $pool);
           Returns two values, the first of which is a reference to a hash
           containing the properties attached to $revision in the repository
           represented by $url.  The second value is the actual revision
           queried.

           Note that unlike its cousin $ctx->proplist(), this routine doesn't
           read a working copy at all; it's a pure network operation that
           reads unversioned properties attached to a revision.

       $ctx->revprop_set($propname, $propval, $url, $revision, $force, $pool);
           Set $propname to $propval on revision $revision in the repository
           represented by $url.

           Returns the actual revision affected.  A $propval of undef will
           delete the property.

           If $force is true, allow newlines in the author property.

           If $propname is an svn-controlled property (i.e. prefixed with
           svn:), then the caller is responsible for ensuring that the value
           is UTF8-encoded and uses LF line-endings.

           Note that unlike its cousin $ctx->propset(), this routine doesn't
           affect the working copy at all; it's a pure network operation that
           changes an unversioned property attached to a revision.  This can
           be used to tweak log messages, dates, authors, and the like.  Be
           careful: it's a lossy operation, meaning that any existing value is
           replaced with the new value, with no way to retrieve the prior
           value.

           Also note that unless the administrator creates a pre-revprop-
           change hook in the repository, this feature will fail.

       $ctx->status($path, $revision, \&status_func, $recursive, $get_all,
       $update, $no_ignore, $pool);
           Given $path to a working copy directory (or single file), call
           status_func() with a set of svn_wc_status_t objects which describe
           the status of $path and its children.

           If $recursive is true, recurse fully, else do only immediate
           children.

           If $get_all is set, retrieve all entries; otherwise, retrieve only
           'interesting' entries (local mods and/or out-of-date).

           If $update is set, contact the repository and augment the status
           objects with information about out-of-dateness (with respect to
           $revision).  Also, will return the value of the actual revision
           against with the working copy was compared.  (The return will be
           undef if $update is not set).

           The function recurses into externals definitions ('svn:externals')
           after handling the main target, if any exist.  The function calls
           the notify callback with $SVN::Wc::Notify::Action::status_external
           action before handling each externals definition, and with
           $SVN::Wc::Notify::Action::status_completed after each.

           The status_func subroutine takes the following parameters: $path,
           $status

           $path is the pathname of the file or directory which status is
           being reported.  $status is a svn_wc_status_t object.

           The return of the status_func subroutine is ignored.

       $ctx->info($path_or_url, $peg_revision, $revision, \&receiver,
       $recurse);
           Invokes \&receiver passing it information about $path_or_url for
           $revision.  The information returned is system-generated metadata,
           not the sort of "property" metadata created by users.  For methods
           available on the object passed to \&receiver, see svn_info_t.

           If both revision arguments are either svn_opt_revision_unspecified
           or NULL, then information will be pulled solely from the working
           copy; no network connections will be made.

           Otherwise, information will be pulled from a repository.  The
           actual node revision selected is determined by the $path_or_url as
           it exists in $peg_revision.  If $peg_revision is undef, then it
           defaults to HEAD for URLs or WORKING for WC targets.

           If $path_or_url is not a local path, then if $revision is PREV (or
           some other kind that requires a local path), an error will be
           returned, because the desired revision cannot be determined.

           Uses the authentication baton cached in ctx to authenticate against
           the repository.

           If $recurse is true (and $path_or_url is a directory) this will be
           a recursive operation, invoking $receiver on each child.

            my $receiver = sub {
                my( $path, $info, $pool ) = @_;
                print "Current revision of $path is ", $info->rev, "\n";
            };
            $ctx->info( 'foo/bar.c', undef, 'WORKING', $receiver, 0 );

       $ctx->switch($path, $url, $revision, $recursive, $pool);
           Switch working tree $path to $url at $revision.

           $revision must be a number, 'HEAD', or a date, otherwise it raises
           the $SVN::Error::CLIENT_BAD_REVISION error.

           Calls the notify callback on paths affected by the switch.  Also
           invokes the callback for files that may be restored from the text-
           base because they were removed from the working copy.

           Summary of purpose: This is normally used to switch a working
           directory over to another line of development, such as a branch or
           a tag.  Switching an existing working directory is more efficient
           than checking out $url from scratch.

           Returns the value of the revision to which the working copy was
           actually switched.

       $ctx->update($path, $revision, $recursive, $pool)
           Update a working copy $path to $revision.

           $revision must be a revision number, 'HEAD', or a date or this
           method will raise the $SVN::Error::CLIENT_BAD_REVISION error.

           Calls the notify callback for each item handled by the update, and
           also for files restored from the text-base.

           Returns the revision to which the working copy was actually
           updated.

       $ctx->url_from_path($target, $pool); or
       SVN::Client::url_from_path($target, $pool);
           Returns the URL for $target.

           If $target is already a URL it returns $target.

           If $target is a versioned item, it returns $target's entry URL.

           If $target is unversioned (has no entry), returns undef.

       $ctx->uuid_from_path($path, $adm_access, $pool);
           Return the repository uuid for working-copy $path, allocated in
           $pool.

           Use $adm_access to retrieve the uuid from $path's entry; if not
           present in the entry, then call $ctx->uuid_from_url() to retrieve,
           using the entry's URL.

           Note: The only reason this function falls back on
           $ctx->uuid_from_url is for compatibility purposes.  Old working
           copies may not have uuids in the entries files.

           Note: This method probably doesn't work right now without a lot of
           pain, because SVN::Wc is incomplete and it requires an adm_access
           object from it.

       $ctx->uuid_from_url($url, $pool);
           Return repository uuid for url.

ATTRIBUTE METHODS
       The following attribute methods are provided that allow you to set
       various configuration or retrieve it.  They all take value(s) to set
       the attribute and return the new value of the attribute or no
       parameters which returns the current value.

       $ctx->auth(SVN::Client::get_username_provider());
           Provides access to the auth_baton in the svn_client_ctx_t attached
           to the SVN::Client object.

           This method will accept an array or array ref of values returned
           from the authentication provider functions see "AUTHENTICATION
           PROVIDERS", which it will convert to an auth_baton for you.  This
           is the preferred method of setting the auth_baton.

           It will also accept a scalar that references a _p_svn_auth_baton_t
           such as those returned from SVN::Core::auth_open and
           SVN::Core::auth_open_helper.

       $ctx->notify(\&notify);
           Sets the notify callback for the client context to a code reference
           that you pass.  It always returns the current codereference set.

           The subroutine pointed to by this reference will be called when a
           change is made to the working copy.  The return value of this
           function is ignored.  It's only purpose is to notify you of the
           change.

           The subroutine will receive 6 parameters.  The first parameter will
           be the path of the changed file (absolute or relative to the cwd).
           The second is an integer specifying the type of action taken.  See
           SVN::Wc for a list of the possible actions values and what they
           mean.  The 3rd is an integer specifying the kind of node the path
           is, which can be: $SVN::Node::none, $SVN::Node::file,
           $SVN::Node::dir, $SVN::Node::unknown.  The fourth parameter is the
           mime-type of the file or undef if the mime-type is unknown (it will
           always be undef for directories).  The 5th parameter is the state
           of the file, again see SVN::Wc for a list of the possible states.
           The 6th and final parameter is the numeric revision number of the
           changed file.  The revision number will be -1 except when the
           action is $SVN::Wc::Notify::Action::update_completed.

       $ctx->log_msg(\&log_msg)
           Sets the log_msg callback for the client context to a code
           reference that you pass.  It always returns the current
           codereference set.

           The subroutine pointed to by this coderef will be called to get the
           log message for any operation that will commit a revision to the
           repo.

           It receives 4 parameters.  The first parameter is a reference to a
           scalar value in which the callback should place the log_msg.  If
           you wish to cancel the commit you can set this scalar to undef.
           The 2nd value is a path to a temporary file which might be holding
           that log message, or undef if no such field exists (though, if
           log_msg is undef, this value is undefined).  The log message MUST
           be a UTF8 string with LF line separators.  The 3rd parameter is a
           reference to an array of svn_client_commit_item3_t objects, which
           may be fully or only partially filled-in, depending on the type of
           commit operation.  The 4th and last parameter will be a pool.

           If the function wishes to return an error it should return a
           svn_error_t object made with SVN::Error::create.  Any other return
           value will be interpreted as SVN_NO_ERROR.

       $ctx->cancel(\&cancel)
           Sets the log_msg callback for the client context to a code
           reference that you pass.  It always returns the current
           codereference set.

           The subroutine pointed to by this value will be called to see if
           the operation should be canceled.  If the operation should be
           canceled, the function may return one of the following values:

           An svn_error_t object made with SVN::Error::create.

           Any true value, in which case the bindings will generate an
           svn_error_t object for you with the error code of SVN_ERR_CANCELLED
           and the string set to "By cancel callback".

           A string, in which case the bindings will generate an svn_error_t
           object for you with the error code of SVN_ERR_CANCELLED and the
           string set to the string you returned.

           Any other value will be interpreted as wanting to continue the
           operation.  Generally, it's best to return 0 to continue the
           operation.

       $ctx->pool(new SVN::Pool);
           Method that sets or gets the default pool that is passed to method
           calls requiring a pool, but which were not explicitly passed one.

           See SVN::Core for more information about how pools are managed in
           this interface.

       $ctx->config(SVN::Core::config_get_config(undef));
           Method that allows access to the config member of the
           svn_client_ctx_t.  Accepts a Perl hash to set, which is what
           functions like SVN::Core:config_get_config() will return.

           It will return a _p_arp_hash_t scalar.  This is a temporary
           situation.  The return value is not particular useful.  In the
           future, this value will be tied to the actual hash used by the C
           API.

AUTHENTICATION PROVIDERS
       The following functions get authentication providers for you.  They
       come in two forms.  Standard or File versions, which look for
       authentication information in the subversion configuration directory
       that was previously cached, or Prompt versions which call a subroutine
       to allow you to prompt the user for the information.

       The functions that return the svn_auth_provider_object_t for prompt
       style providers take a reference to a Perl subroutine to use for the
       callback.  The first parameter each of these subroutines receive is a
       credential object.  The subroutines return the response by setting
       members of that object.  Members may be set like so:
       $cred->username("breser");  These functions and credential objects
       always have a may_save member which specifies if the authentication
       data will be cached.

       The providers are as follows:

               NAME                WHAT IT HANDLES
               ----------------    ----------------------------------------
               simple              username and password pairs

               username            username only

               ssl_server_trust    server certificates and failures
                                   authenticating them

               ssl_client_cert     client side certificate files

               ssl_client_cert_pw  password for a client side certificate file.

       SVN::Client::get_simple_provider
           Returns a simple provider that returns information from previously
           cached sessions.  Takes no parameters or one pool parameter.

       SVN::Client::get_simple_prompt_provider
           Returns a simple provider that prompts the user via a callback.
           Takes two or three parameters, the first is the callback
           subroutine, the 2nd is the number of retries to allow, the 3rd is
           optionally a pool.  The subroutine gets called with the following
           parameters: a svn_auth_cred_simple_t object, a realm string, a
           default username, may_save, and a pool.  The svn_auth_cred_simple
           has the following members: username, password, and may_save.

       SVN::Client::get_username_provider
           Returns a username provider that returns information from a
           previously cached sessions.  Takes no parameters or one pool
           parameter.

       SVN::Client::get_username_prompt_provider
           Returns a username provider that prompts the user via a callback.
           Takes two or three parameters, the first is the callback
           subroutine, the 2nd is the number of retries to allow, the 3rd is
           optionally a pool.  The subroutine gets called with the following
           parameters: a svn_auth_cred_username_t object, a realm string, a
           default username, may_save, and a pool.  The svn_auth_cred_username
           has the following members: username and may_save.

       SVN::Client::get_ssl_server_trust_file_provider
           Returns a server trust provider that returns information from
           previously cached sessions.  Takes no parameters or optionally a
           pool parameter.

       SVN::Client::get_ssl_server_trust_prompt_provider
           Returns a server trust  provider that prompts the user via a
           callback. Takes one or two parameters the callback subroutine and
           optionally a pool parameter.  The subroutine gets called with the
           following parameters.  A svn_auth_cred_ssl_server_trust_t object, a
           realm string, an integer specifying how the certificate failed
           authentication, a svn_auth_ssl_server_cert_info_t object, may_save,
           and a pool.  The svn_auth_cred_ssl_server_trust_t object has the
           following members: may_save and accepted_failures.  The
           svn_auth_ssl_server_cert_info_t object has the following members
           (and behaves just like cred objects though you can't modify it):
           hostname, fingerprint, valid_from, valid_until, issuer_dname,
           ascii_cert.

           The masks used for determining the failures are in SVN::Auth::SSL
           and are named:

           $SVN::Auth::SSL::NOTYETVALID $SVN::Auth::SSL::EXPIRED
           $SVN::Auth::SSL::CNMISMATCH $SVN::Auth::SSL::UNKNOWNCA
           $SVN::Auth::SSL::OTHER

           You reply by setting the accepted_failures of the cred object with
           an integer of the values for what you want to accept bitwise AND'd
           together.

       SVN::Client::get_ssl_cert_file_provider
           Returns a client certificate provider that returns information from
           previously cached sessions.  Takes no parameters or optionally a
           pool parameter.

       SVN::Client::get_ssl_cert_prompt_provider
           Returns a client certificate provider that prompts the user via a

           subroutine, the 2nd is the number of retries to allow, the 3rd is
           optionally a pool parameter.  The subroutine gets called with the
           following parameters.  A svn_auth_cred_ssl_client_cert object, a
           realm string, may_save, and a pool.  The
           svn_auth_cred_ssl_client_cert the following members: cert_file and
           may_save.

       SVN::Client::get_ssl_cert_pw_file_provider
           Returns a client certificate password provider that returns
           information from previously cached sessions.  Takes no parameters
           or optionally a pool parameter.

       SVN::Client::get_ssl_cert_pw_prompt_provider
           Returns a client certificate password provider that prompts the
           user via a callback. Takes two or three parameters, the first is
           the callback subroutine, the 2nd is the number of retries to allow,
           the 3rd is optionally a pool parameter.  The subroutine gets called
           with the following parameters.  A svn_auth_cred_ssl_client_cert_pw
           object, a realm string, may_save, and a pool.  The
           svn_auth_cred_ssl_client_cert_pw has the following members:
           password and may_save.

OBJECTS
       These are some of the object types that are returned from the methods
       and functions.  Others are documented in SVN::Core and SVN::Wc.  If an
       object is not documented, it is more than likely opaque and not
       something you can do anything with, except pass to other functions that
       require such objects.

   svn_info_t
       $info->URL()
               Where the item lives in the repository.

       $info->rev()
               The revision of the object.  If path_or_url is a working-copy
               path, then this is its current working revnum.  If path_or_url
               is a URL, then this is the repos revision that path_or_url
               lives in.

       $info->kind()
               The node's kind.

       $info->repos_root_URL()
               The root URL of the repository.

       $info->repos_UUID()
               The repository's UUID.

       $info->last_changed_rev()
               The last revision in which this object changed.

       $info->last_changed_date()
               The date of the last_changed_rev.

       $info->last_changed_author()
               The author of the last_changed_rev.

       $info->lock()
               An exclusive lock, if present.  Could be either local or
               remote.

       See SVN::Wc::svn_wc_entry_t for the rest of these.   svn_client.h
       indicates that these were copied from that struct and mean the same
       things.   They are also only useful when working with a WC.

       $info->has_wc_info()
       $info->schedule()
       $info->copyfrom_url()
       $info->copyfrom_rev()
       $info->text_time()
       $info->prop_time()
       $info->checksum()
       $info->conflict_old()
       $info->conflict_new()
       $info->conflict_wrk()
       $info->prejfile()

   svn_client_commit_item3_t
       $citem->path()
               Absolute working-copy path of item.

       $citem->kind()
               An integer representing the type of node it is (file/dir).  Can
               be one of the following constants: $SVN::Node::none
               $SVN::Node::file $SVN::Node::dir $SVN::Node::unknown

       $citem->url()
               Commit URL for this item.

       $citem->revision()
               Revision (copyfrom_rev if state_flags has IS_COPY set).

       $citem->copyform_url();
               CopyFrom URL

       $citem->state_flags();
               One of several state flags: $SVN::Client::COMMIT_ITEM_ADD
               $SVN::Client::COMMIT_ITEM_DELETE
               $SVN::Client::COMMIT_ITEM_TEXT_MODS
               $SVN::Client::COMMIT_ITEM_PROP_MODS
               $SVN::Client::COMMIT_ITEM_IS_COPY

       $citem>incoming_prop_changes()

               changes to WC properties.

       $citem>outgoing_prop_changes()
               A reference to an array of svn_prop_t objects representing
               extra changes to properties in the repository (which are not
               necessarily reflected by the WC).

   svn_client_commit_info_t
       $cinfo->revision()
           Just committed revision.

       $cinfo->date()
           Server-Side date of the commit as a string.

       $cinfo->author()
           Author of the commit.

   svn_client_proplist_item_t
       $proplist->node_name()
               The name of the node on which these properties are set.

       $proplist->prop_hash()
               A reference to a hash of property names and values.

TODO
       * Better support for the config.

       * Unit tests for cleanup, diff, export, merge, move, relocate, resolved
       and switch.  This may reveal problems for using these methods as I
       haven't tested them yet that require deeper fixes.
