BZFlag SVN, is the Subversion Revision Controll System used by the development team to maintain and store the BZFlag Source code. The SVN system is hosted by SourceForge and is accessible by anyone with the proper software.

SVN clients

To access the source code via SVN , you will need a SVN client. Most unix/linux type operating systems have the command line SVN client as an installable option. Windows users must download a third party SVN client, such as the Tortoise Graphical SVN Client.

Command line

The simplest way to get all the bzflag source code for every module is to simply get the entire trunk

  svn co bzflag

This will get all modules and subdirs. This will take a while. It is often more efficient to only get the subdir for the module you are interested in.


Windows users that use the Tortoise Graphical SVN Client, should do stuff.
