You can't. Not with CVS, with a single command, at least. You could
specify each file to update, but that's a lot of work.

I don't. I think that is actually a very bad idea.

Suppose I'm working on a C source file. Someone else modifies a
different part of that file, plus a different file that I haven't
modified, and checks in those changes. If I were to update using your
scenario, I would only get half the changes made by the other person -
and the chances are my program will no longer compile.
