  Unfortunately, none of these are especially good excuses now that the department has Subversion installed. Sure, you could complain that you shouldn't be required to use a program unless someone teaches you how, but if you're even reading this page, then you've lost that excuse, because Subversion is so easy to use that even by reading up to this point, you're practically a Subversion user.

Purpose

Version control serves two purposes. The first is that it maintains snapshots of the files you work on, so that you can roll-back to a previous state when something goes horribly wrong. The second is that it enables collaboration by managing the mechanisms by which users update the master copy of the files in a project.

Merging Differences

If you're a big fan of using GUIs, take a look at xxdiff-subversion, which is installed in /usr/grads/bin/. It will display changes and allow you to resolve them directly. Try xxdiff-subversion --help for usage.
