I am new at this stuff, but I think I have thoroughly checked manuals,
FAQs, and this list's archive. I have found discussions that come close
but none that address this issue.
I have modules defined such that I can check out the following structure:
This works fine, but there are other files on the same level as a.c, and
another directory on that level also (parallel to myproj/). The problem
comes when I want to update. In the test directory described above, I type
cvs update. The problem is that when I do this I get the other files and
directories on that level (i.e. I end up with the following structure)
When I try to use the module name with update (i.e. cvs update test) from
within the directory, I get
cvs update: nothing known about test
If I try cvs update test from the level above test, I get
cvs update: cannot open CVS/Entries for reading: No such file or directory
cvs update: nothing known about testtop
cvs [update aborted]: cannot open CVS/Root: No such file or directory
Is it just the case that once I check things out to this level using this
module, I need to update one file/submodule at a time, or am I mis-using
the modules feature and/or options in CVS???
My modules are defined as:
toplev -a a.c
testtop -a toplev myproj/hello.c myproj/README.txt
Any help (or pointers if this is already discussed somewhere I couldn't
find) would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!
