Will git allow me to checkout a file(or files) to specific directories that is/are different from the main repository and still have the "different" files be under version control?
Here's my example(using svn now): I have a main repository where I have the bulk of the files checked out. Some files within my repository have to be in specific directories in order to run.
Right now with svn I have to keep copying files back and forth in order to either run the file or have the files be under version control. It's getting old and causing me to not use version control properly. According to this link http://subversion.tigris.org/faq.htm...-file-checkout
svn cannot do this.
I was thinking I'd switch to git if it can do this but I can't seem to find this answer for git.
