Anonymous CVS checkout(for developer checkout see sourceforge help)
go to the directory where you want to put SuperColliderServer (SC3). cvs will create a SuperCollider3 directory there:
Then type the following command:
cvs -d:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot/supercollider login
When cvs asks for the password, just press enter and wait for the prompt to return.
The next command will take some time as it checks out all the files for the project.
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:email@example.com:/cvsroot/supercollider co SuperCollider3
You should see lines like the following:
cvs server: Updating SuperCollider3 U SuperCollider3/.DS_Store U SuperCollider3/COPYING [etc...]
If you get "connection reset by peer", just try again. This is probably server traffic problems (You might also have to try the login again).FAQ
After this you will have the project in a folder named SuperCollider3.
Updating from cvsto update, from the same location, change into the now-existing SuperCollider3 directory and do
cvs -z3 update -dP
autobuild.shgets the most recent update, builds all 3 projects in order and launches SuperCollider. You may enjoy tea or coffee in the meanwhile.
#!/bin/sh cvs update cd ../SC3synth.pbproj pbxbuild -activetarget -buildstyle "Deployment" build cd ../SC3plugins.pbproj pbxbuild -activetarget -buildstyle "Deployment" build cd SC3lang.pbproj pbxbuild -activetarget -buildstyle "Deployment" build open ../build/SuperCollider.app
save this as autobuild.sh in your SC folder, chmod a+x to make it executible and run it by invoking: ./autobuild.sh
- the sourceforge download/update does not work. what's wrong?
or you can type:
until cvs update; do sleep 100; done;
(an wait till it works)
CVS settingsi strongly recommend putting this:
diff -pRbBrHEAD update -dP history -c
in your ~/.cvsrc file
this will make these the default flags for these commands.
diff will always compare with the most recent version. it will go recursively from your current directory on down. the other flags improve the readibility.
p show which C function (or sc class !)
bB ignore white space changes
update will prune folders that have had their contents removed. this is a common problem with CVS, its tricky to remove things.
history will show everybody's history, not just your own.
