Excerpt of article text...
Recent versions of REALbasic contain a new "Version Control Project" format. This saves the project as a whole bunch of text files. With these files, you can use a version control system such as Subversion (SVN, http://subversion.tigris.org/) to manage changes in your REALbasic project. This article shows you how to set up Subversion on Mac OS X, create a repository for your project, and check in changes made within REALbasic.
This article assumes that you want to work with a local, file-based Subversion repository. I haven't yet experimented with multi-user check in/out using Subversion and REALbasic, but the same principles below should work for multiple users.
Start by downloading Martin Ott's Subversion installer for Mac OS X (http://www.codingmonkeys.de/mbo/). For the purposes of this article I'm using Martin's Subversion 1.4.3 package (http://www.codingmonkeys.de/mbo/Subversion-1.4.3.pkg.zip). Many thanks to Martin for making such an easy installer available for Subversion!
Once the package has downloaded, it should run automatically and present you with the Subversion installer. Click continue a few times, agree to the license, and select your system disk to install the Subversion software. Click continue, then Install, enter your admin password, and Subversion will be installed. Close the installer -- this bit is done!
