RE: Partial checkout of an ampersand module

If you want the same file all the time, you could also try this:

part_one_file  -d part_one path/to/part_one file

cvs co part_one_file

and you should get
U part_one/file

Haven't tried it with the -d, but I have done the selected file checkout
by specifying:

module    reposdirectory file ...

in the modules file.

It doesn't work with ampersand modules though. For example:

moduleA path/to/whateverA fileA
moduleB path/to/whateverB fileB
ampermod        &moduleA &moduleB

If you checkout moduleA you'll get fileA only. If you checkout moduleB
get fileB only, but if you check out ampermod, you'll get all of the
contents of whateverA and whateverB. Just ignores the file specifics for
some reason.
