Hello, My need is to work with a different version control : svn
I find the site very difficult to navigate and read ( subversion.tigris.org )
Maybe I dont understand svn thats why
Here is my understanding : 1 >You need a svn server installed 2 >You need a svn client 3 >checkout checkin etc from server to client machine(s)
Here are my questions : Using eclipse I am able to use svn client I want to use a command line client - looking at svn tigris site just gives me the creeps - I dont see a straight way to get a command line client
Googling has not really helped me much either
I want a client for windows box
I also downloaded tortoise svn - but istnt that more a graphical tool ?
First question that would come to mind is why I want to use a command line tool rather than a graphical tool ? - 1 >I want to learn the exact commands 2 >I want to automate the process of checking out code with ant / maven and then with a CI tool
Lastly - can I use Tortoise SVN from command line ?
I'm not sure what confused you about the web site. I was able to find what you're looking for rather quickly: Windows Binaries -> CollabNet -> Bingo! a Windows command line client two clicks away from the home page.
Tortoise is for integration with the Windows Explorer, not for command line work.
