svn_checkout

(PECL svn >= 0.1.0)

svn_checkoutChecks out a working copy from the repository

Description

bool svn_checkout ( string $repos , string $targetpath [, int $revision [, int $flags = 0 ]] )

Checks out a working copy from the repository at repos to targetpath at revision revision.

Parameters

repos

String URL path to directory in repository to check out.

targetpath

String local path to directory to check out in to

Note: Relative paths will be resolved as if the current working directory was the one that contains the PHP binary. To use the calling script's working directory, use realpath() or dirname(__FILE__).

revision

Integer revision number of repository to check out. Default is HEAD, the most recent revision.

flags

Any combination of SVN_NON_RECURSIVE and SVN_IGNORE_EXTERNALS.

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.

Notes

Warning

This function is EXPERIMENTAL. The behaviour of this function, its name, and surrounding documentation may change without notice in a future release of PHP. This function should be used at your own risk.

Examples

Example #1 Basic example

This example demonstrates how to check out a directory from a repository to a directory named calc:

<?php
svn_checkout
('http://www.example.com/svnroot/calc/trunk'dirname(__FILE__) . '/calc');
?>

The dirname(__FILE__) call is necessary in order to convert the calc relative path into an absolute one. If calc exists, you can also use realpath() to retrieve an absolute path.

For those who are trying to use this while they don't patch out the  SVN_IGNORE_EXTERNALS constant that is missing, I've found the equivalent integer flag if you want to use before the official release:

if(!defined('SVN_IGNORE_EXTERNALS'))
    define('SVN_IGNORE_EXTERNALS', 128);
