Creating a Reference Copy

The cvs import operation effectively re-creates the p:\nettest\sources directory tree under configuration control. However in addition to requiring a ‘checked in’ version, we also require a machine readable (or ‘reference’) copy of the source code.

If this was not done, even though you may be able to read the ‘form’ you are working on, you could not reference the application model definitions or include procs etc. Some source code managers (like PVCS) automatically can create a reference directory, however CVS and many others can be ‘taught’ to (see Keeping a checked out copy in the cvs help file).

To create an initial read-only checked out copy, execute the following commands:


md p:\nettest\source

cd p:\nettest\source

cvs -r checkout .
