RE: Updating from parent directory

Actually, after playing with it a little more today, I think i can see what
the issue is. From the parent directory, the following command is

        cvs update -r B1_0 -d -P B1_0

This updates the contents of the B1_0 sub-directory with the latest
revisions of files form the B1_0 branch.

However the following command does not work:

        cvs update -r MAIN -d -P MAIN

I get the following error:

        cvs [server aborted]: no such tag MAIN

Of course there is no real need to pass the -r MAIN argument, since it will
default to this, but this means I need to have logic in my script to act
differently depending on if it is the MAIN branch or another branch.

Am I doing something wrong, or is it normal not to be able to refer to the
MAIN branch just like any other branch?
