Which made me wonder: if I have a branch, and I want to update to the
that was on the branch at a specific date/time, how do I do it without
explicitly specifying a version number?
The manual states that the -j option has the handy date specifier, i.e.
but that doesn't work with the -r option. If I update to the branch
then try to impose a date specification:
cvs update -rSymbolic_Tag <file>
cvs update -DDate_Specifier <file>
...then the -D option cancels the sticky tag from the -r and updates to
the relevant HEAD version instead.
I'm probably being thick here but I can't see how to get the equivalent
the hypothetical command
cvs update -rSymbolic_Tag:Date_Specifier <file>
Anyone? (This is CVSNT 2.5.03 2382 on Linux, BTW.)
