Hello,
My need is to work with a different version control : svn

I find the site very difficult to navigate and read ( subversion.tigris.org )

Maybe I dont understand svn thats why

Here is my understanding :
1 >You need a svn server installed
2 >You need a svn client
3 >checkout checkin etc from server to client machine(s)

Here are my questions :
Using eclipse I am able to use svn client
I want to use a command line client - looking at svn tigris site just gives me the creeps - I dont see a straight way to get a command line client

Googling has not really helped me much either

I want a client for windows box

I also downloaded tortoise svn - but istnt that more a graphical tool ?

First question that would come to mind is why I want to use a command line tool rather than a graphical tool ? -
1 >I want to learn the exact commands
2 >I want to automate the process of checking out code with ant / maven and then with a CI tool

Lastly - can I use Tortoise SVN from command line ?

Thanks,
anagha

I'm not sure what confused you about the web site. I was able to find what you're looking for rather quickly: Windows Binaries -> CollabNet -> Bingo! a Windows command line client two clicks away from the home page.

Tortoise is for integration with the Windows Explorer, not for command line work.
