Default plugins in stable builds - source?

Post by pepak » Tue 28 Jul, 2009 07:13

I am looking for the source code of some default plugins (distributed with FAR Manager). I know I can get the current version in SVN here, but that's not exactly what I would like - I would much prefer to get the source code that was used in "last stable FAR". Is it available somewhere?

In Subversion, you can get not only the latest but any intermediate version if you know its revision number.
  • On the downloads page, you see that the latest stable build was 981.
  • You issue the command:

    Code: Select all

    svn info http://farmanager.com/svn/tags/unicode_far/20_b981/
    which helpfully tells you:

    Code: Select all

    Last Changed Rev: 3112
    Now you know that build 981 is revision 3112.
  • Then you issue the command:

    Code: Select all

    svn co http://farmanager.com/svn/trunk/plugins/@3112 plugins-b981
    which gets you the contents of http://farmanager.com/svn/trunk/plugins/ as it was at revision 3112 and puts it into the directory plugins-b981.
If you wanted the sources of FAR itself, you could look directly under tags/unicode_far/20_b981. It would be nice if plugins also got tagged, but for some reason the tags/plugins/* subdirectories are empty.
