Using CVS

There are two main ways to use the CVS Source Repository. For non Tenforty developers there is anonymous access, while for developers there is a more fully interactive (though eventually more complex method).

To View the CVS Repository with the View CVS interface go here.

Anonymous Access

The main project interface starts at the SourceForge Project CVS page .
There you will find succinct instructions on accessing the CVS sources.

Here is a slightly more expanded set of instructions.

Anonymous CVS Access
This project's CVS repository can be checked out through anonymous (pserver) CVS with the following instruction set.

cvs login

When prompted for a password for anonymous, simply press the Enter key. The module you wish to check out must be specified as the modulename. Continue on with:

cvs -z3 co modulename

Once you have a built source tree updates from within the module's directory do not need the -d parameter. So from within the CVS working source you may update at anytime with :

cvs -z3 co modulename

View CVS to choose a module.

If you have difficulty with any this
please contact our admin person. < >

Developer CVS Access via SSH

The same SourceForge Project CVS page gives you an introduction to the project CVS repository.

Only project developers can access the CVS Repository via this method. SSH1 must be installed on your client machine.
Substitute modulename and developername with the proper values.
Enter your site password when prompted.

export CVS_RSH=ssh

cvs -z3 co modulename

Other Documentation

CVS is a powerful and useful tool here are some links to documentation on using this Concurrent "Versioning" System.

CVS-Quick start the Tenforty Version.
Soon to be renamed "the document formerly known as Quick start" this doc introduces you to the basic daily use of CVS from the point of view of a Tenforty Project developer.

You may find the "CVS Step by Step" helpfull. It gives 1040 specific examples to obtaining a working copy and putting your changes into the CVS repository.
