In the CVS1.11.22
 it says that: "CVS is cautious and will merge
 automatically only as long as the changes aren't made to the same lines
 of code." If the changes are made to the same lines of code, though, how
 does CVS treat them? What will be saved and how? How will it look when
 somebody checks out the file?

as user1 on another_workstation:

export CVSROOT=:ext:brownjug:/appl/src/cvs/JavaAppl

export CVS_RSH=ssh

cvs checkout projectdir

Could you please explain each of these commands ie what do they do?I wanted to know the same explanation for the earlier commands used on the server and workstation side done by "sadia" to understand the flow

 check out only works once the project is set up, correct? Do I have to create a project
 directory first?  What does check out mean? Why do I
 have to do it? Then what do I have to do to save the changes? If the
 changes are made to the same line of code, what will happen? What should
 I be careful to do? What are the binary files? What do they do?

I look forward for your help and suggestions
