Checking out files from a source control system

Post by dfrobison » Wed Aug 10, 2005 8:25 pm

I have files that are checked into a source control system (ClearCase). I would like the ability to have AFR check files out of the source control system before a replace it done. Is there currently anyway to do that?

Do you mean check out from repository?
Why don't you should command line parameters for ClearCase (for
example here)
Then you may use AFR in command with command line paramstoo.

The problem is that I have 8000 files scattered all over a deep directory tree. It is very inconvenient to go to a specific directory and check out the file. Since AFR is already already searching and replacing, why can't it take the next step and automate the check out process?

I'm currently in the process of updating several thousand files. It has been extremely time consuming to check out the needed file each time some text is to be replaced.
