Question about CVS checkout vs. RCS

 Dear folks,

My company is looking into CVS as a replacement for RCS.  We currently have perl
scripts set up to customize the RCS commands to our configuration:  when I check
out in RCS, using the scripts, the resulting module does not include the ',v' in
the filename, or the symbolic tag information housed in the archive file.  When
I use the CVS checkout command, the module I end up with matches the file in the
repository, i.e. it has the ',v' and the tag info.

I'm brand new to CVS, and not that old a hand at RCS, so pardon the naivete
please.  Is there something in the website or the Cedarqvist that tells how to
get around this behavior?  Our build expect the current version (or the tagged
version), not the whole enchilada.

This is a showstopper for our project -- any help you can give us would be
Atlanta Sheridan
