I created a file on a branch, made numerous changes, and ulitimately removed

I know that CVS sees the file since a 'cvs co <file>' will tell me it is no
loner pertinent.  A 'cvs log' will show me the complete commit log.  But how
do I get the damned source??



cvs checkout -p -r[last revision before remove] [filename] > [tempfile]

This will checkout to standard out and redirect to tempfile.

e.g. cvs checkout -p -r1.2.4.6 >

Hope this helps,
