NEWBIE: Multiple source directories in a single project?

Subject: NEWBIE: Multiple source directories in a single project?
Date: Wed, 05 Feb 2003 16:03:13 -0500

I'm trying to use CVS for the very first time, and of course I have to pick a 
real-world, complex example to begin with, because I'm impatient with working 
through simpler projects.

I have a project, called 'prds' which has two separate source code directories, 
/home/prds and /usr/local/httpd/htdocs/prds. What's the best way to handle this 
in CVS? Should I enter the separate directories as if they were two separate 
projects? I was hoping to set it up so that it was handled as a single entity.

Searching for "multiple" and "directories"  in the archives of this list 
yielded many references to "multiple repositories" but nothing I thought was 
applicable to this situation. Didn't find anything in the FAQ either.

Is this just a strange way of programming? Should I try to force the project 
into a single directory branch, then create the two other branches with 
symlinks or something?

Thank you for your thoughts as advice. If I've overlooked the answer already in 
archives or FAQ, please just point it out and accept my apologies.
