   Well you almost got it right.  The "-r" option should have been after 
the "co" command.  Where options are placed in a command line is 
important in CVS.  Options that come just after the "cvs" command are 
global options and after that any options that are specified refer to 
the last command on the command line.  So in the cast above "-r" was 
treated as a global option rather than as an option to "co".

   Check out:


   For good documentation on using CVS.  It's worth spending some time 
getting used to it as it's really powerful once you are confident with it!
