svn can not check out a directory only; any work arroud? October 28, 2007Posted by sandakith in Open Source, Tooling.
Ever needed to do a quick trivial fix to a single file, and its obvious you will never break the code. But to do that need you need to check out that particular file. But sadly svn seems can not check out a single file al0ne. So what are our options here.. Checking out the whole directory structure that fills out your disk space (Maybe you feel negative to donate that much space) . No..
Actually you can use : svn checkout –non-recursive <location>
This will only checkout the exact location contents without going into them recursively. Not the perfect solution but works for me every time.
