Checking Items Out

Once a module has been created, you can begin checking items out of that module. First, you'll need to change to a suitable directory on the Local side. This can be done in several ways:
  • if the directory exists, then you may either:
  • navigate to the proper directory via double clicking on directory icons, or dragging a directory icon up to the Local field and dropping it in there
  • edit the field next to the Local button, then hit return
  • if you wish to create a new directory, go to the menu Local->New Directory ..., fill in the appropriate directory name, and then click on the Ok button
  • After you have found a suitable Local directory, drag the items which you wish to check out from the Repository onto the appropriate Local directory icon.

    If all goes well, you should see the items appear in the specified Local directory. There will also be an administrative directory, /CVS for each subdirectory in a checked out directory.

    You may now begin editing items. Click here to see how.
