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.
