Use Far Manager - http://farmanager.com/ - it's a BSD licensed
intuitive interface
for working with files from console. Cheatsheet:
 - use F1 - it really helps;
 - user menu - F2 - for frequently called commands (Alt-F8 for command history);
 - command line helpers
   - output redirection
view:< svn up
   - redirect to editor
edit:< svn up
   - Ctrl-O to hide panels (Ctrl-Alt-Shift to temporary hide)
   - Alt-Ins (select and copy text on screen)
 - Alt-F7 - search for files
 - Alt-<letters> - quick jump to file in current panel
 - macros:
   - press Ctrl-.
   - do something
   - press Ctrl-. again, assign a shortcut
   - press shortcut
   - you action is repeated
   - ???
   - profit
 - install Colorer plugin to get syntax highlighting in editor
 - use F11 to control plugins (FAR Macro browser allows to edit
macros, for example)

That should be enough for the starter.
