I really ought to use source code control. I know it. But my laziness combined with my poor memory, makes it hard.
I'm trying out subversion. I'll make some notes here to help me remember.
To create a new project myproject in my repository I need to:
cd ~/Desktop mkdir myproject cd myproject mkdir trunk tags branches cp -r path_to_myproject_files/* trunk/ clean up any junk files svn import ~/Desktop/myproject svn+ssh://email@example.com/cvs/user/gb/svn/myproject -m "initial import" cd place_to_work mv path_to_myproject_files out of the way if necessary svn checkout svn+ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org/cvs/user/gb/svn/myproject/trunk myproject
Then in that working directory the commands to know are:
svn update, and
