Are you saying I should run the commands you listed in addition to what I ran earlier,
meaning I run yours first and once I have the file in place, I can run cvs add & ci?
I ran rlog file_name,v |grep 'revision ' |head -1 |cut -f 2 -d" "
note the ,v I added. My original file was at version 1.1, the deleted version was as
at 1.2 and when I ran the above command it shows 1.2.  So do I wanna run
rcs -sEXP:1.14 file_name with ,v also? Secondly, do I wanna say -sexp:1.1 or 1.2?
