Initial Checkout

Most of the time, you will start using a Subversion repository by doing a checkout of your project. Checking out a repository creates a working copy of it on your local machine. This copy contains the HEAD (latest revision) of the Subversion repository that you specify on the command line:

$ svn checkout http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk
A    trunk/Makefile.in
A    trunk/ac-helpers
A    trunk/ac-helpers/install.sh
A    trunk/ac-helpers/install-sh
A    trunk/build.conf
...
