I think my question is somehow general.

I've been trying some commands using 
cvs admin and I think I can make my
question a bit more particular.

I manage to execute
        cvs admin -lrev file

with rev a numeric number for a revision
(or a branch). However, whenever I am
using a symbolic tag for the same revision
(or branch) it doesn't work anymore.
It seems to me that cvs admin is just
looking for the "revision" word in the
corresponding file,v, and not the symbolic

Is there a means to make it work?

A solution which works is to go into
the repository and execute 

        rcs -lsym_tag_rev file

but I don't know if this is

Also, is there a way of executing
the above rcs command on a directory
(without doing rcs for every file)?
