Hi

Could you please write common use cases of your tool.

I see only one use case: when user goes to a computer club and wants to download something. But in this case it's comfortable to download to temp folder all data and then store it in specified ZIP archive?

At home and at work you can install svn clients.

My scenario - I use TFS, and I don't want to install SVN clients and learn how to use them. I need something simple that just works.
I wrote this utility for me, and I made it public so others who needs it can use it.

If you find it easier to install SVN client - do that.

What is TFS?

Using of SVN is commonly used among programmers. Almost all programmers where i work use it. So from my point of view it's investment of the programmer into himself - to study commonly used technologies.

Did you tried TurtoiseSVN Repo browser?

I had the same situation with svn.I dislike it for it's complexity but during 3 monthes of work i get used to it and now i'm finding it great.

I'm not talking that your tool is bad. As for me at university and computer club where no turtoise SVN client installed it's very comfortable to use your tool ;)

TFS - Team Foundation System, it's Microsoft source control (actually software life cycle) that replaced SourceSafe. Simple, easy and integrates in with Visual Studio. It's major drawback - it's not free.

It has been a while since I tried SVN clients. When I did - one insists he wants Java VM, others wanted to attach themselfs to Windows Explorer/Visual Studio/whatever. At that time I couldn't find a simple stand-alone client for SVN.

Writing this small utility took me less time than trying to find a tool that will fit my needs.

Apparently this is a nice tool for who does not want to use a SVN client to download the source code they want. I know most SVN clients support this feature already, but they are all too big to download or install and you need to spend some time reading their manual. This tool releases them from the overshoots.$0$0$0$0But I really want to comment on the home page. Do you know that CodePlex now supports SVN clients directly? Thus, now this tool can be used to download source code from CodePlex, too (besides Google Code and SF.net).$0

I didn't know that CodePlex supports SVN, but anyway, in CodePlex you can download a zipped version of the source code after every check-in so there's no need to use this tool. For some reason both Google Code & SF.NET force you to use SVN or web interface to download the source. I wish they had this feature, which will make the project obsulete.

Yes, that's a big problem that much software sites does not provide a feature - latest zipped sources from its svn

Heres another reason:  Your behind a proxy.  Of course, your source didn't include proxy code so i added it, but it works great behind a proxy now.  If you would like my additions, let me know.
