An really embarrassing question: I have specified my CVS root, and within this CVS root I have a repository, let call it REP. Within REP, I have a file TEST.TXT where I wanna see all revisions of it. Unfortunately, I cant get this work, i tried the following:

cvs history TEST.TXT
cvs history /REP/TEST.TXT
cvs history REP/TEST.TXT

Anyone an idea what I am doing wrong? Do i miss a command that tells CVS which repository I am referring to?

Many thanks!

only r* commands can be ran directly against the repository.
cvs --help-commands 2>&1 |grep "        r"|grep -v re

cvs -d CVS_repository rlog REP/TEST.TXT

or in a checked out copy

cd REP
cvs history TEST.TXT
cvs log TEST.TXT

BTW I assume that because you did not indicate you are working in some other environment, that you are working in a Unix or Unix like environment.
include $CVS_ROOT
include cvs --version
