Get (Command Line)
Retrieves read-only copies of the specified Visual SourceSafe files or projects to your working folder. For definitions of the command options, see Command Options in this Help system.
ss Get <items> [-G] [-H] [-I-] [-N] [-O] [-R] [-V] [-W] [-Y] [-?]
You must have the Read project right to use this command.
By default, the Get command retrieves the most recent version of the files or projects you specify. However, you can get earlier versions as well by using the -V option. See -V Option (Command Line).
Used recursively on a project (-R option), this command retrieves all the files in the project and its subprojects, and places them in subfolders of the same name in your working folder. If you set the initialization variable Force_Dir to Yes in your Ss.ini file, the recursive Get command will place subprojects in their own working folders.
