Practical SubversioneBook - 2005
This book eases the transition from other version control systems. Aimed toward readers who want and need a crash-course in using Subversion, this informative reference begins with a quick-start introduction, then moves on to advanced topics such as repository administration, Apache integration, third-party tools, migrating revision history, and accessing the Subversion APIs from other programs.
In addition, author Garrett Rooney, a Subversion developer, covers advanced topics not documented in other books. Rooney clearly explains how to integrate Subversion with common development tools and illustrates how to embed Subversion within your own programs. Multiple appendices compare SVN to other version control systems and offer alternative client applications.
