[REVIEW] Chapter 9 : svn copy

I've got a little issue for the svn copy command:

The book mentions within the text:

Copy revision 8 of bat.c into your working copy under a different name:

but the command line output does not define a particular revision:

$ svn cp bat.c ya-old-bat.c
A         ya-old-bat.c

For this i have attached a patch.

The second part i have to mentioned is a given command line example:

$ svn copy file:///var/svn/repos/test/far-away near-here
A         near-here

and within the Top-Box is written:
"This is the recommended way to resurrect a dead file in your repository!"

So in my opinion the above command line example should have an
supplemental option -r Rev to define an old revision number in the
repository.. to resurrect an dead file...

Kind regards
