Automatically updating local repositories

Hey guys, so I am still fairly new to the world of Linux, svn and bash. I was wondering, would it be possible for me to write a bash script which would automatically run an update of my local repositories? Perhaps this could happen upon restarting my computer or at a specific time (if the computer is on).. anyone every done something like that before?

Do you have the command that does it (once)?
Then you can put it into crontab with an appropriate schedule.
Read about the crontab with
Code:
man crontab
