Subject [jira] [Commented] (SVN-4604) There is no svnw.exe
Date Mon, 25 Apr 2016 11:35:12 GMT


Stefan Hett commented on SVN-4604:

NN, the point is that pythonw is the GUI version of python. When you use it to run/execute
a script you simply won't see a terminal popping up, because it "would" create a GUI (aka
a separate window). The behavior of pythonw is that when you execute it by passing a script
directly as a parameter, it just executes it and directly terminates afterwards. Since it's
not a console application, you won't see any output.
That said, if you just start pythonw without any parameter, it will start up the full GUI.

As [~brane] stated, adding such a GUI is outside the scope of the Subversion project to my
knowledge (atm). It's what the multiple available client products are for, of which TSVN is
one. If you are looking for a capability like pythonw, then you are better of checking whether
there's a suitable GUI already out there for your case.
If all you are aiming for is to prevent a terminal/command line window from opening up when
you execute svn from a batch file, please check your OS documentation. There should be ways
to prevent terminal pop ups. In case of Windows, just google for it. There are multiple different
ways to achieve that (some being as simple as clicking the appropriate checkbox).
