Check out files from Subversion (svn co / working copy)

Home > Search

The svn checkout (or svn co for short) command can be used to check out files from one of your Subversion repositories. For example, let's say is a repository of files being version controlled by Subversion. You can check out the repository. This creates a working copy of the repository on your local system. 

svn co /tmp


You can then modify the files locally. Once you are ready to commit the updated file back into the Subversion repository, you would check in the file.
