In my company, we are on a process to slowly migrate from ClearCase to Plastic SCM. They have devised a lot of methods to work with ClearCase over the years, and I am currently trying to "migrate" a specific procedure from CC to Plastic.
What we do in CC:
1- We have a common view, let's call it common_view. It has its config spec set to retrieve the correct version of some files using a specific label.
2- Every user has a bat file on their startup configuration (we are using windows)
3- This batch file:
Starts common_view from CC server using cleartool (and maps it to X:\common_view\ )
Copies (overwrites certain files (mostly perl scripts and batch files) from the CC view to a specific location (in AppData folder of the user)
I would like to do this with plastic. We have already created a repo & workspace with the necessary files and applied the required label to the correct versions of the files.
What I need is to download those files to a specific local path (that can be accessed via a script, on all of the users' computers) using a command line interface (I believe cm is the cleartool of Plastic, so to speak). How can I achieve this?
Thank you very much for your help in advance.
