     svn - Subversion command line client tool

     svn command [options] [args]

     Subversion  is a version control system, which allows you to
     keep old versions of files and directories  (usually  source
     code),  keep  a  log of who, when, and why changes occurred,
     etc., like CVS, RCS or SCCS.  Subversion keeps a single copy
     of  the  master  sources.   This  copy  is called the source
     ``repository''; it contains all the  information  to  permit
     extracting previous versions of those files at any time.

     For  more  information  about  the Subversion project, visit

     Documentation  for  Subversion  and  its  tools,   including
     detailed  usage  explanations of the svn, svnadmin, svnserve
     and svnlook programs, historical  background,  philosophical
     approaches and reasonings, etc., can be found at http://svn-

     Run `svn help' to access the built-in tool documentation.
