CVS is simple enough to use once you get started that a script shouldn't
be needed.

Logging in just stores the password for future use.  You only need to
log in to a repository once, not every time you want to use it.

That should be:

        cd AppModule
        cvs update

Other than things like checkout/export and import, CVS commands should
be run in the working directory.  And you don't need to specify the
CVSROOT, CVS remembers it when you do the initial checkout and then uses
it for any subsequent commands in that directory.
