Note: Relative paths will be resolved as if the current working directory was the one that contains the PHP binary. To use the calling script's working directory, use realpath() or dirname(__FILE__).
Integer revision number of repository to check out. Default is HEAD, the most recent revision.

This function is EXPERIMENTAL. The behaviour of this function, its name, and surrounding documentation may change without notice in a future release of PHP. This function should be used at your own risk.
Example #1 Basic example
This example demonstrates how to check out a directory from a repository to a directory named calc:
svn_checkout('http://www.example.com/svnroot/calc/trunk', dirname(__FILE__) . '/calc');
The dirname(__FILE__) call is necessary in order to convert the calc relative path into an absolute one. If calc exists, you can also use realpath() to retrieve an absolute path.
