update -C

In the command quick reference there is mention of a -C option for the update command.  I need to get the file that is in the repository and overwrite the current working file, and it looks like the -C option would do that for me, but I get the following error:
stimpy# cvs update -C
update: invalid option -- C
Usage: cvs update [-APdflRp] [-k kopt] [-r rev|-D date] [-j rev]
    [-I ign] [-W spec] [files...]
        -A      Reset any sticky tags/date/kopts.
        -P      Prune empty directories.
        -d      Build directories, like checkout does.
        -f      Force a head revision match if tag/date not found.
        -l      Local directory only, no recursion.
        -R      Process directories recursively.
        -p      Send updates to standard output (avoids stickiness).
        -k kopt Use RCS kopt -k option on checkout.
        -r rev  Update using specified revision/tag (is sticky).
        -D date Set date to update from (is sticky).
        -j rev  Merge in changes made between current revision and rev.
        -I ign  More files to ignore (! to reset).
        -W spec Wrappers specification line.
(Specify the --help global option for a list of other help options)
Where did this option go?  How else can I do this?
