Re: Rolling back to a previous revision per module

Thanks for the quick response. I should rephrase my question. Yes I want to move a whole module back in time. I don't need to keep the changes that were made after that time in the repository.
One way to do it is to do this:
cvs export -D "11/15" module
cd currentproject
cvs remove *
cp ../module/* .
cvs add *
cvs commit

I just know there is a better way to do it.

So the question is: How do I move a module back to a previous date and begin working on it as if I hadn't made any changes. I want to change the current working version and discard all the information that might come after it.

Hi Nate,

You say "module", do you really mean module or
do you mean an individual file?

If it is a whole module ( i.e. your top-level
directory ), each file inside a module has it's
own revision. You are better off doing it by
date ( see the -D flag to update in the manual ),
revisions aren't the right way to do this.

If you mean an individual file, here's an easy way
to pull revision 1.1 of filename.c onto your
working copy ( you would just need to commit
it, making a new revision, 1.6, that is equivalent
to 1.1 ) :

cvs update -pr 1.1 filename.c > filename.c
