Thank you for trying BitKeeper! The following test drive will walk you
through the installation and use of BitKeeper in the day-to-day life of
an average Windows developer. This test drive does not cover the more
advanced topics of distributed source control but is instead meant as an
introduction to life in BitKeeper on Windows.
This test drive covers the following topics:
The test drive makes it easy for you to follow along with what you should
be doing by providing instructions in separate command boxes. These boxes
will show you exactly what to do at each step of the test drive. The prompts
you follow will be different depending on how you're running the test drive.
They will look like this:
BitKeeper GUI prompt: When you see this, follow the instructions in the BitKeeper GUI|
Windows GUI prompt: When you see this, follow the instructions in Windows Explorer.|
Command Prompt: When you see this, follow the instructions at the open Command Prompt.|
that any time you see a Windows command prompt throughout this test drive,
the contents of that window may not look like what you see in your window.
The output from BitKeeper changes from version to version, so what you see
may not be exactly what is pictured in the test drive. As long as things
don't look like an error, you should be ok.
If you're ready to get started, let's move on.
