Re: Getting the version number in a "notify" message

So who knows how can I find the version number that
was MOST RECENTLY checked in (regardless of branch)
for a particular file by a particular user?  Here's
the "cvs history" command that I have so far:

"cvs history -c -a -l -f <path_and_filename_in_repo>"

The problem I encountered when testing this is that
I got more than one line of output from the above

$ cvs history -c -a -l -f tools/cvsweb/cvsweb
M 08/25 14:24 +0000 alonghi 1.20 cvsweb         tools/cvsweb == <remote>
M 01/19 22:20 +0000 alonghi 1.3 tools/cvsweb == <remote>

It would appear that CVS is doing some sort of "grep" on the
history file and listing all files in this directory that
START with the filename I gave.  I could try to filter through
the (potentially) multiple files that this command gives
me, but I'd rather do it "the right way" (if there is one!).

(I'm using CVS 1.10 on an HP-UX 10.20 server with pserver
access from various client platforms.)
