<h1>Cloning The Complete Development History</h1>

<p>To clone the entire history of SQLite, first go to the
[http://www.fossil-scm.org/download.html] page and grab a precompiled binary
for the Fossil version control program.  (Or get the source code on the
same page and compile it yourself.)  Fossil is a completely stand-alone










program, so install it simply by putting the "fossil" or "fossil.exe"
executable someplace on your $PATH or %PATH%.  Then enter:


<codeblock>
fossil clone http://www.sqlite.org/cgi/src sqlite.fossil
</codeblock>


<p>That command will make a copy of the complete development history of
SQLite into the "sqlite.fossil" file on your computer.  Making this copy
takes about a minute and uses about 32 megabytes of transfer.  After
making the copy, "open" the repository by typing:

<codeblock>
fossil open sqlite.fossil
</codeblock>

<h1>Cloning The Complete Development History</h1>

<p>To clone the entire history of SQLite, first go to the
[http://www.fossil-scm.org/download.html] page and grab a precompiled binary
for the Fossil version control program.  Or get the source code on the
same page and compile it yourself.

<p>As of 2017-03-12, you must use Fossil version
2.0 or later for the following instructions to work.  
The SQLite repository started using
artifacts named using SHA3 hashes instead of SHA1 hashes on that date,
and Fossil 2.0 or later is needed in order to understand the new SHA3
hashes.  To find out what version of Fossil you are running, 
type "fossil -v".</p>

<p>Fossil is a completely stand-alone
program, so install it simply by putting the "fossil" or "fossil.exe"
executable someplace on your $PATH or %PATH%.  After you have Fossil
installed, do this:

<codeblock>
fossil clone http://www.sqlite.org/cgi/src sqlite.fossil
</codeblock>

<p>The command above
will make a copy of the complete development history of
SQLite into the "sqlite.fossil" file on your computer.  Making this copy
takes about a minute and uses about 32 megabytes of transfer.  After
making the copy, "open" the repository by typing:

<codeblock>
