cvs upd -r mybranch
cvs diff -D "2001-05-17 16:12Z" -D "2002-01-21 18:12" myfile.c
cvs diff -D "2001-05-17 16:12" -D "1 month ago" myfile.c yourfile.
cvs diff -D "2001-05-17 16:12" -D "1 year 2 months ago" *.h
cvs diff -D "5 years 2 months 3 weeks ago" -D "18:12"

is specified in GMT, otherwise it’s local time.

If you don’t run the first update command, all the diffs will be done on
the main branch.
