Description

If no revision is specified this exports the last committed revision.

Format may be an “exporter” name, such as tar, tgz, tbz2. If none is given, try to find the format with the extension. If no extension is found exports to a directory (equivalent to –format=dir).

If root is supplied, it will be used as the root directory inside container formats (tar, zip, etc). If it is not supplied it will default to the exported filename. The root option has no effect for ‘dir’ format.

If branch is omitted then the branch containing the current working directory will be used.

Note: Export of tree with non-ASCII filenames to zip is not supported.
