This is the process of taking a resource from the repository and saving it locally in a clean

Important: By default, the SVN system only exports the content of
the directory specified by the URL, and not the directory itself. Therefore, it is
recommended to use the Browse button to select the

Warning: The destination directory should be empty. If files exist, they will be
overwritten by exported files with matching names.
Recursive (infinity) - Exports all the files and folders
contained in the selected folder.
Immediate children (immediates) - Exports only the child files
and folders without recursing subfolders.
File children only (files) - Export only the child files.
This folder only (empty) - Exports only the selected folder (no
child file or folder is included).

end-of-line marker (carriage return - line feed).
LF - The Unix / OS X-specific
end-of-line marker (line feed).
CR - The Mac OS 9 (or older)-specific
end-of-line marker (carriage return).
When enabled, the export operation does not expand the SVN keywords found
inside the files.
