The Power of CVS Page 4

There, now you know how to import your source code and access it from anywhere, and
just as importantly, you can now automate the updating of your live webserver.

Before you go…

Other useful cvs commands include cvs add file.php3 and cvs rm file.php3. I won’t
go into details on using compares and merges, as that’s fairly sophisticated and I personally
never use it in my work. Needless to say, the CVS doc at
is extremely useful and will provide more details than I can here. For additional info, you can also
visit Cyclic Software.
I hope you find CVS as powerful and useful as I do. I’m now using it to control all of my
personal docs like spreadsheets, word processor docs, etc, etc. Please let me know how you use CVS
and I may include it in a future revision of this article.
