1.2.7. Updating a Working Copy

To update a working copy and get the latest changes from a Subversion repository, change to the directory with the working copy and run the following command:
svn update

Example 1.13. Updating a working copy

Imagine that the directory with your working copy of a Subversion repository has the following contents:
project]$ ls
AUTHORS  doc  INSTALL  LICENSE  Makefile  README  src TODO
Also imagine that somebody recently added ChangeLog to the repository, removed the TODO file from it, changed the name of LICENSE to COPYING, and made some changes to Makefile. To update this working copy, type:
myproject]$ svn update
D    LICENSE
D    TODO
A    COPYING
A    Changelog
M    Makefile
