Do you want to recover the old contents, or just create a brand new file
with the same name?  If you want to recover the old contents, use update
with two -j options to undo the remove.  For example, if "cvs log" says
the current revision of the file is 1.40 (with state "dead"), do:

        cvs up -j 1.40 -j 1.39 file

If you want a brand new file with the same name, just "cvs add" it and
CVS will more the RCS file out of the Attic when you commit it.
