  • !trunk {PATH} -- print a link to a particular file or folder (log view).
  • !trunk {PATH} markup -- get a link to source of some file (in HTML).
  • !trunk {PATH} markup {REVISION} -- the same but to a file of a particular revision.
  • !trunk {PATH} blank {REVISION} -- the same but source of some file will be shown as text.
