Getting Rid of Dead Files in a Subversion Working Directory

 In programming, version control

Quick Tip:
I often find that I delete files before I remember that I should have deleted them using subversion. To help solve that problem I found/created the following command.

svn st |grep "^\!" |cut -c8- | xargs svn rm --force

This takes all the files that are missing from the checked out version of the repository and forces their removal. Enjoy!
