Use this option to check out elements (files or directories) from VOBs.
For full details of the checkout command, see the ClearCase manual page (type cleartool man checkout.)
The ClearCase Check Out Action can use View- or Extended- pathnames.
Checked out files can be reserved or unreserved. Only one user can hold a reserved checkout on a single element. See the manual page for more details.
Checked Out File Location
By default, files are checked out to the view they were accessed from.
Choose specific version/branch
Different versions/branches to the one specified by the config spec can only be checked out from dynamic views. This option is not available on ClearCase LT.
