Re: checking out a file (not a module)

the problem with this, is that it creates a new path.. for example, if i
have a directory 'dir' and a file in it 'foo' and i remove foo, dir is empty

if i then do, inside of 'dir', 'cvs co dir/foo' it will create another
directory 'dir' inside of 'dir'...

im looking to just create the file 'foo' by itself...

in case this is foggy, what im really trying to do is implement an empty
directory heirarchy.  the users (programmers) and i want their modules
(directories) to be empty.. then, when they do a checkout, it will take that
one file.  btw, in order to do this, i will, i suppose, need to make a
snappy build script that will know where to look for files and all.. this
"checking out a file (not a module)" trick is just the first step..

if anyone has any ideas on the subject, they would more than be

thanx again for all of your help.. hopefully soon enough ill be able to help
new folks and you all can sit back and relax with your wine and cheese..
