Potential New User questions
Our organization is currently in the process of migrating from Microsoft
VSS, to Dimensions. However, the way Dimensions was installed as well
as other issues, we have decided to take a look at other version control
and source code repository systems.
I've got a few questions regarding subversion, that I haven't been able
to locate on the subversion web site:
1. Can a user perform a "scan" or search through files stored in the
subversion db? For example, in VSS, a user can start at the "root"
project and do a recursive scan for "some string to look for" and the
scan will recursively look through all files and folders under the
2. If a single file (an .html file for example) needs to be "checked
out", worked on, and "checked back in", can that be done without
recompiling the entire project or directory? Seems to me like the
entire directory would need to be reversioned. True?
Thanks for your help.
