CVS Help
« on: December 13, 2002, 12:26:01 am »

Trying to avoid the "you idiot" bombing, I was wondering if I could get some help with CVS. I've never used it, and am not sure how it works.

Don't worry, CVS is so easy, even a developer can use it.  Tongue

First things first, you'll want to get some client software from http://cvshome.org  I'd personally recommend the command-line version for everything, but if you're addicted to GUIs on win32, then I'd highly recommend TortoiseCVS.  It integrates mostly-seamlessly with Windows Explorer, and is brain-dead-simple to use/figure out.

After that, all you need to do is follow the instructions here:

Damn it, I had to go install it to answer this.  That'll learn me Smiley

Right-click on the file you want to make a udiff for.  In the Context menu, choose CVS -> Make Patch  Choose a destination filename for the patch, TortoiseCVS should create a udiff at that location.

You want "the right one for you", naturally. Wink

The "historical download pages" are far less ambiguous:

<http://www.cvshome.org/downloads.html?JServSessionIdservlets=al0vhpbxw1>

or <http://www.tortoisecvs.org> if you prefer candy-coated win32 graphical interfaces..
