Useful CVS commands

Some useful CVS commands:

Drupal, check out a contrib module: cvs -d :pserver:anonymous:anonymous@cvs.drupal.org/cvs/drupal-contrib co -d views -R HEAD contributions/modules/views

Drupal, check out latest HEAD: cvs -z6 -d:pserver:anonymous:anonymous@cvs.drupal.org:/cvs/drupal checkout -d mywebsites/drupal_head/ drupal

Once you have a copy of the Drupal HEAD, keeping up-to-date is simple! Use the cd command to navigate your way into your HEAD directory, and then use:

$ cvs update -dP -- excerpt from http://drupal.org/node/320
