CVS: An Introduction
There are several CVS clients available so you don't have to manipulate CVS from the command line. TkCVS is currently at version 6.4 and requires Tcl/Tk 8.1 or better. Pharmacy, which is currently at version 0.2.1, is part of the GNOME project, while Cervisia, at version 1.0 stable, uses the Qt and KDE libraries. Another client that uses the Qt toolkit is LinCVS, version 0.3. See the Resources section for pointers to these projects.
While CVS is a very powerful tool that allows far-flung developers to collaborate on projects over the Internet, it is also easy to configure and use on a local machine. If you frequently update files and need to keep track of the changes, CVS allows you to build a record of what changes were made.
