View Full Version : CVS usage

25th November 2004, 01:52 AM

I am using CVS for my project. My current revision now is 1.7. However, I want to get back the copy of revision 1.3. Currently. I have to checkout the 1.7 copy, create a patch file (between 1.7 and 1.3) and then patch 1.7 reversely with that file to get back the version 1.3.
This way is quite troublesome and requires many commands for such a simple task.

Does anyone know a better way to get back the 1.3 revision.

Sure thing... with CVS you can comit and checkout based on tags, dates, revisions, etc. Try cvs checkout -r 1.3
