Taking control

As a way of introducing CVS, we'll go through a typical work-session using CVS. . The first thing to understand is that CVS stores all files in a centralized repository (see section The Repository); this section assumes that a repository is set up (see previous section).

Before loading your source into a configuration management tool, it is wise to compile all objects and forms, eg:

$idf /all

This ensures that all the descriptors have been generated for the forms. Without this information you will not be able to compile forms in the CM tool since they will be read-only and the descriptors cannot be generated (see the nodeny parameter in the USYS$UD6_PARAMS help topic).

For the same reasons you may wish to start up the IDF and select the Assembly Area, then the Assembly Workbench.
