Command-line interface

Command-line programs have to be downloaded separately from Reliable Software web site. Here's the list with the new applets bolded:

Installing and Configuring Command-line

If you have never set-up command-line applets, it's pretty simple to do.

First, install the command-line applets into your designated directory. Next, you will need to add this path to your system information. To do this, go to Control Panel and select System. Click the Advanced tab and then click the Environment Variables button. You will see a field "Path" under System Variables. Select it and click Edit. You will need to add the location to where the command-line applets are installed at the end of the line. Note: Each location is separated by a semicolon. You will add something like this: ;c:\co-opcmd

To add some automation to your development, you can create a batch file to call these applets.

Calling the Command-line Functions

Each command-line applet will print a short help message when you execute it from the command-line without any arguments (or with the switch -? or -h).

For example, when calling "checkout" without an argument, you get the following:

Prepare project files for edits.
checkout <options> <files>
options:
-a -- checkout all project files
-r -- recursive checkout
-? -- display help

If you want to check-out all the files in a project, you would type something like this: checkout -a "c:\projects\my project name"

Keep in mind that when you specify files, you can use absolute paths or paths relative to current directory (in particular you can use file names in the current directory). The inputted file paths determine the Code Co-op project in which the given operation is carried out.
