And to browse the history of previous revisions use rlog.

  rlog filename

I find using co piping to stdout into a pager most convenient while

  co -p -r1.8 filename | less

Then if I want to revert completely to a previous version things go
somewhat like this:

  co -l filename           # locks the head
  co -p -r1.8 > filename
  ci -u filename
