Essential CVS 

CVS, Concurrent Versioning System, is a popular source code management tool that frees developers from the chaos that often occurs when multiple users work on the same file. An open source technology available on most computer platforms, including Windows® and Mac OS® X, CVS is widely used to manage program code, website content, and track changes. for the system configuration file. Multiple users can check out files from a directory tree, make changes, and then commit those changes to the directory. If two developers modify the same file, CVS allows both sets of changes to be merged into one final file. While CVS is a lifesaver in many development cases, it is difficult to document. But with Essential CVS, developers can have it all: the freedom brought by CVS and the comprehensive documentation developers need. The Essential CVS is a comprehensive, easy-to-follow reference that helps programmers and system administrators manage large amounts of documents. The book covers the basics and usage of CVS and provides a comprehensive reference to CVS commands – including a handy command reference map for quick field testing. The book also includes advanced information on all aspects of CVS related to automation, logging, branching, merging, and “clocks”.
