cvs update

I've been using cvs for a couple of months but mostly I used tortoisecvs so I didn't understood what happened "behind the interface". Now I want to learn some of the command line parameters and discovered that if I type "cvs update" then cvs doesn't necessarily get changes from the repository and overwrites my files in the current directory...

Instead it sometimes makes a new revision and stores the old file in a filename (something like "blabla#1.3#", it then apparantly adds a new file revision to the repository - I can't exactly remember the filename). I don't want this behaviour.

I mostly just want cvs to overwrite all local files if I didn't commit the changes... How to avoid this "blabla#1.3#" revision stuff? Yesterday I deleted this "#1.3#" file and when I wanted to commit some changes, it complained about missing this file...

Thanks in advance for your comments...

Best regards / Med venlig hilsen
