Description

The rosinstall command can download source code trees from a variety of source control systems (e.g. Git, Mercurial, Bazaar, Subversion).  The rosinstall file format lets you specify multiple source code trees, which simplifies the process of creating development workspaces.

rosinstall does the following:

1.

Merges all URIs into new or existing .rosinstall file at PATH

2.

Checks out or updates all version controlled URIs

3.

Calls rosmake after checkout or updates

4.

Generates/overwrites updated setup files

Run “rosinstall -h” to access the built-in tool documentation.
