Subversion started life as a command-line tool, but graphical clients are now extremely popular and can offer a lot of extra power. For every task in Pragmatic Guide to Subversion, you get to see how to carry out the task via the regular command-line client as well as the TortoiseSVN graphical client for Windows, and the Cornerstone graphical client for Mac.
Whether or not you’ve used other version control tools, you’ll learn Subversion’s popular way of working—how to access your source code, make changes, and share them with your team.
