We use SVN for our Matlab toolbox Brainstorm. A .svn sub folder is created within every folder in the repository by SVN. When I was trying to add folders(including sub folders) to path, It will add all these .svn folders to the path. Then I found out you can simply add one line to the GENPATH function, and use
to add to the path.
The line to be added in is at #48 in GENPATH function for Matlab R2006b:
~strcmp( dirname,'.svn') &...
Alternatively, you can replace the attached function with the default one. (Remember to make a backup copy)
