Looking for a program, or script, I can use to easily 'walk' through an SVN revision history for a specific file. Anyone know if this exists? Can I achieve this with the command line client for svn?

What I'd like to be able to do:

  • request diff for file between revision x and x-1 (I use a script that show me the diff in vimdiff, similar to this: )
  • while staying inside vimdiff, call 'next' or 'prev' command, and show me diff between x and x-2, or between x-1 and x-2

I'd rustle something up in bash/sed/awk, but I'd rather use something that already exists.
