CVS Basics

Here are some most often used CVS commands. After you got your local copy of a module, all the CVS commands related to the module you should do inside the module directory.
  • Export CVS_RSH if not already done: export CVS_RSH=ssh
  • How to checkout module "hadaq": cvs -d checkout hadaq
  • How to update your local copy of module: cvs update
  • How to commit modified files: cvs commit -m "your message" file1 file2
  • How to add new files to a module:
    • cvs add file1 file2
    • cvs commit -m "your message" file1 file2
  • How to create a new module: cvs import module_name vendor_tag symbolic_tagname

CVS Code Repositories

All VHDL, C and other code should be put to the cvs under /misc/hadesprojects/daq/cvsroot/ to keep it available for everyone - it also gives some additional security in case of a failure on your machine.
