|Subject:||CVS/RCS notion of "state"|
|Date:||Tue, 29 May 2001 15:45:42 -0400|
It is my understanding that CVS supports the RCS notion of "state". In other words a developer can mark a source file as being in a particular state such as "Exp(erimental)" or "Rel(eased)". This is done using the following command.
cvs admin -sRel myfile.txt.
My question is how can one then checkout files by state rather than by revision or tag. For example I might have 10 differnet revs of a file 5 experimental 1 release and 4 more revs experimental. Suppose I want to checkout only the "Released" revision; for multiple files yet.
cvs checkout -(some command here)"Rel" myfile.txt // or
cvs checkout -(some command here)"Rel" *.txt
