|The first command is:
|sh bash ksh etc...:
$ export CVSROOT=':pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvs'
$ setenv CVSROOT :pserver:email@example.com:/cvs
|You might want to put this in your login script.
Then do the command:
$ cvs login
(the password is "cvs")
|This needs to be done only ONCE, not everytime you access CVS.
Now checkout failsafe. The first time you will want to do something
$ cvs -z3 checkout failsafe
|You will get three components of failsafe:
Each of these components have their own buildling mechanisms
found in the respective sub-directories.
After you have checked the code out, you can update using:
$ cvs -z3 update -d
|to update your copy to the latest version from the CVS server, and
CVS for new users
contains links to more documentation.
