Using CVS

CVS is an open source version control system.

In addition to the standard version control system functions described in Using Common Functions, you can select Tools > CVS > Edit to set a file as writable, notify watchers that the file is being edited, and watch for actions performed on the file by other users.

To discard the changes that you made in a file, notify watchers that the file is no longer being edited, and set the file as read-only, select Unedit.

To unedit files in the local directory, as well as recursively in all subdirectories, select Unedit Repository.

To specify the CVS root directory, select Edit > Preferences > Version Control > CVS, and then specify the path to the directory in the CVS root field.

You can specify settings for viewing diff output in the Diff options field.

By default, you are prompted to confirm that you want to submit changes. To suppress the prompt, deselect the Prompt on submit check box.

By default, all files that belong to the commit are annotated. To disable this feature, deselect the Describe all files matching commit id check box.
