Setting editor to vi from emacs on OSX


Hi,

When I use svn on OSX it opens up emacs but I would rather use vi. Anyone know how to set it to be vi please (I've tried putting 'set keymap vi' into my bash_profile but no luck).

Thanks,
Alex

I think this works (if you are using bash)

export SVN_EDITOR=vi
