I am attempting to tag previous revisions of specific files but my command is failing. I obviously am not getting the command right. I am attempting this to a CVS server on Linux (1.11.17), pserver access, using the WinCVS 1.2 client command line interface.

Suppose I have a file in the repository:


This file's HEAD is currently at revision 1.18. I want to apply the tag SHIPPED_2.0 to revision 1.15. I am attempting the command:

cvs -n -t rtag -f -r 1.15 SHIPPED_2.0 /base/submodule/code.c

But I get back:

cvs rtag: notice: main loop with CVSROOT=:pserver:address@hidden:/usr/local/repository
cvs server: WARNING: global `-l' option ignored.
S-> my_module (/base/submodule/code.c, Tagging, , SHIPPED_2.0)
cvs [rtag aborted]: Absolute module reference invalid: `/base/submodule/code.c'
S-> Lock_Cleanup()

I am aware that the -n and -t global flags (between cvs and rtag) prevent the actual operation and provide a trace of the command. The rtag command is new to me so I thought it would be good to test first. :^)

However, the syntax on the rest of it must be wrong. Any helpful clues from the gallery?
