checking out single files

From: Darren Blaser <darrenb_at_extendedsystems.com>

Our build process requires that we retrieve single files from the
repository. Checking out entire directories seems to work fine but
unfortunately whenever a call is made to retrieve a single file I get
the following error:
svn: Attempted to create entry in non-directory parent

The calling syntax used to create this error is:
svn checkout file:///C:/Repositories/XCPC/rsutils/rsLib/rsUtil.lib
/rsutils/rsLib/rsUtil.lib

My basic problem is that we have hundreds of .lib files in this
repository directory and I only want to retrieve one of them -- not the
entire directory with all of them. The strange thing is that subversion
creates a directory with the intended file name at the intended
destination. I have tried several variations on the syntax but I always
get the same error and instead of checking out the intended file
subversion creates a directory with the file name.

Can someone help me out or is subversion not able to check out single
files? I'm running subversion 1.0.2 on Windows 2000 SP4.

Thanks!
