CVS from command prompt


Checking out

cd "to ur folder" && cvs -f -d server:<username>@<cvs server ip>/data/cvshome/bdc3 checkout -P <module name>

Updating to a Tagged branch
cvs -f -q update -l -d -P -r <TAG name> '<path of a folder to update>' 2>&1

cvs log (Run this command where CVS folder is lying)... This will give you all the committ logs for all the files

Needless to say, you should be logged in before hand
cvs -f -d server:<username>@<cvs server ip>:<path> login

Please add if you know how to look at History of any file from command prompt and etc.

This is to ensure that people dont spend time reading in help and man page and newbies gets help directly....

I meant (post corrected), that user's are not very likely to find this thread, vs. just looking at the man page or some CVS tutorials, etc.
