Stefan,

What we are looking for is the ability to checkout one or multiple files
from within a repository folder. Having the parent directory created upon
checkout is desired, but our users will not want all the files from a
repository folder checked-out to their development sandbox.

We have one program create an output file and a second program written
independently to validate the output. All of these files are stored in the
same directory and written by several different users. These programs all
operate independently of each other, unlike Java and Web-based programming
where files are interdependent upon each other. Our directory structure
isn't established to support the features of SVN (yet). Our SAS developers
are accustomed to having only the programs they are developing in their
development sandbox areas.

Will the TortoiseSVN interface support checking out one or more files from a
repository folder without checking out the entire contents of the repository
folder?

Thank you,
Kipp
