Assuming that your file is in a module called "usr", then you could do this:

cvs checkout -p usr/local/bin/ > /usr/dev/rubbish/

However, you'll only get the file; you won't get a CVS directory with the
repository metadata.  (But if you're cutting an extract or distribution,
that's probably fine.)

Subject: CVS get without recursion

Hi all,
Hope you can help! I'm trying to "get" files from a CVS server that we've
1) Files are in the CVS server with a path such as "/usr/local/bin/"
2) I want to get the file "" to a completely different directory
For example, I want to get this file to /usr/dev/rubbish. When I do this, 
however, it gets put in as /usr/dev/rubbish/usr/local/bin/
It's like extracting files with full path from a ZIP file.
Is there any way to turn this directory recursion off? - so I can get the
as /usr/dev/rubbish/
