Newbie question on accessing individual files ...

From: Robert Selby <Robert.Selby_at_pro-bel.com>

I have searched the archives and burrowed into the manual but I cant see
how to achieve what I need ... so please excuse this if it seems rather
"newbie" :-)
I have set up a repository for a number of related, but not dependant,
projects and can happily use subversion to do what I need as far as
controlling those sources.
However, there is a project that is used by all of the other projects -
a "bootloader" - each project may use a different version of the
"bootloader" ... though' in general many would use the same variant.
It changes very rarely and the main projects are ONLY interested in the
"bootloader" BINARY - the "bootloader" should NOT be routinely rebuilt,
because if it is then it will need to go back through formal retesting
before anything can be released with it :-(
What I need to do is to get a specific tagged version of the binary file
just before doing the link. I do not want to have the "bootloader"
binary in each main project and the "bootloader" project needs to be
kept separate.
I seem to remember PVCS had the concept of a "get" command for
individual files but there doesn't seem to be any equivalent under
I looked at "export" but it seems to only be happy with whole
directories and I'm not convinced it does what I need.
