        Dear Talha Oktay,
         
        I'm afraid that subversion won't offer you the functionality you need. The external keyword can only import external folders not single files.
        What I'm wondering about is why you are required to have these files in the same directory, can't you configure your application to look
        inside a subfolder instead of the main folder ? (This might be utter rubbish as I don't know anything about your application :-)
         
        Regards,
         
        Lars.

                Yes, I know it sounds silly. But that is the fact. I need to check two projects side by side as being one dependent on the other. As a matter of fact the second project is a collection of files which are not compiled as library. So I have to include the files to the same directory where my main project resides. I am sure this is not the best way to accomplish this, but I am working in an environment which I do not control the structure. If I can not use this extern facility, I will simpy copy and add the files to the projectA which will basically a replication which I do not want to.

                        Did I understand you correctly, you are trying to force a checkout of two projects (A and B) side by side, in the same directory. When checking out A ?
