getting an old version from CVS - rdiff?


I need to get an old version of some code from my cvs repository. I see that I can rdiff, give it a date, and it will give me a patch to patch the old stuff (from that date) up to the new stuff, but can I make the new stuff go back to the old stuff (from the date specified)? Is there some sort of reverse patch or am I going about this all wrong?

You can check out source using a specific date.

Use the command "cvs co -D date modules"

Ciao!

Thanks for the info, but cvs is too hard for me. Could you please download the very first version of this software from it's CVS archive, and then put it on rapidshare?

I just can't do it. Pleasee...

This is not a service provided by LQ!! If you tell us exactly what problem you are having with CVS, we might be able to help solve it.

I can't figure out what commands I need to type to make cvs download the very first version of the project.

Can someone post them inside a code box?

Is there a man page for CVS?

Are there any tutorials on the WEB?

I don't personally know CVS, but I'll bet you a cookie that a Google search will find the answer in less than 5 minutes.
