cvs, svn, wget

While working on Safe TinyOS I have had to write up some instructions. These instructions involve getting sources from various different locations. The ideal write-up looks like a bunch of commands with comments, much like a script (maybe is a script). While getting things from cvs and svn were fairly straightforward for me, I was not sure how to get things from locations not in a repository. Then my advisor suggested wget, which I had forgotten about. I just wget url and then it pulls down whatever was at that url. Problem solved!
