Thanks for the quick reply.

We are running version 1.11.3

When I run cvs -H rtag, I get the Usage info:

Usage: cvs rtag [-abdFflnR] [-r rev|-D date] tag modules...
        -a      Clear tag from removed files that would not otherwise be tagged.
        -b      Make the tag a "branch" tag, allowing concurrent development.
        -d      Delete the given tag.
        -F      Move tag if it already exists.
        -f      Force a head revision match if tag/date not found.
        -l      Local directory only, not recursive.
        -n      No execution of 'tag program'.
        -R      Process directories recursively.
        -r rev  Existing revision/tag.
        -D      Existing date.
(Specify the --help global option for a list of other help options)
