   svn up updates the working directory without changing base URL. Commits
will go to the trunk (or whatever tag/branch it was before updating).
svn switch updates *and* switch the base URL - commits will go to the
tag/branch you are switching to.
   You can also merge some changes from another tag/branch:
svn merge -r 2112:2121 http://svn.example.org/svnroot/anotherbranch/
   (merge the diff between revisions 2121 and 2112 in anotherbranch into
the current working directory).

           Programmers don't die, they just GOSUB without RETURN.
