CVS Query?

Hi -

I've got a small query and I can't find anything in the documentation,
so I was hoping one of the experts might be able to help...

I know it's correct to do a CVS export with a symbolic tag, like:

cvs export -r  MY_TAG_1.1  helloworld.c

but what if I want a look at numeric version x.x of a file. Is there any
way that I can do this?  i.e. export a file by a numberic Tag.  The
documentation seems to say I can but it's not good practice, but when I
try I get the following:

cvs [export aborted]: tag `1.2' must be a symbolic tag

I'm using the following version of cvs:
%cvs -v
Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.10.7 (client/server)
Copyright (c) 1989-1998 Brian Berliner, david d `zoo' zuhn, 
                        Jeff Polk, and other authors

any help would be appreciated.

Thanks very much in advance,

Aidan McPeake
