how to checkout a specific version of a commit in a separate directory using lscm?

Is there an easy way to checkout a a specific version of a commit (that has multiple files changed) into a separate directory?


Currently , I have to do "lscm list changes <commit_uuid> -j", then extract the state-uuid of each file from the output,  and then for every file run "lscm get file -r https://localhost:9443/ccm <commit_uuid>  <state_uuid>  <out_file_path>" . This is pretty cumbersome. Is there a single command that can do the trick for me? Something like "git --work-tree=<workdir> --git-dir=<gitdir> checkout <commit_id>"  in git.

Just for interest's sake, why do you want to do that?

I think this is a very basic usecase. I would like to move to a specific state of the code, when debugging or something like that.

It makes sense to have some components of a workspace loaded onto disk, but why a single change set?
