svn_deleteDelete items from a working copy or repository.


bool svn_delete ( string $path [, bool $force = false ] )

Deletes the file, directory or symbolic link at path from the working directory. The item will be deleted from the repository the next time you call svn_commit() on the working copy.



Path of item to delete.

Note: 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__).


If TRUE, the file will be deleted even if it has local modifications. Otherwise, local modifications will result in a failure. Default is FALSE

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.
