Fervent Coder Coding Towards Utopia...by Rob Reynolds

In all discussion about how to get started, I didn't mention that there are prerequisites to using UppercuT.  Well, really there is only one prerequisite. 

Prerequisites

  • Source control command line tool on the path

If you are unsure, open a command line and type svn to find out if you already have it installed.

Download

In our case Subversion Command line client. You can get that from Collabnet (you will have to register) at http://www.collab.net/downloads/subversion/. Note: If you have installed VisualSVN, you already have command line SVN on the path. 

Choose CollabNet Subversion Command-Line Client v1.x.x (for Windows).

Register, download, and install that.

Ensure Path

Then you have to ensure it's on the path so you can open a command line in any folder and type svn.

Note: If you install CollabNet's SVN client, it should already be on the path.

1. These instructions are geared to WindowsXP. Adjust for other Operating Systems.

2. Right click on My Computer on the Desktop and select [Properties].

3. Click on the Advanced tab. Click on {Environment Variables}.

4. In the System variables section, there is a variable named Path. Select Path, and then click {Edit}.

5. Ensure that somewhere in that long set of text is C:\Program Files\CollabNet Subversion Client;. If it's not there, add it. Make sure you separate each path with a semi-colon (;).

6. Click {OK}. Click {OK} all the way out.

 

With this knowledge you shall build.
