I am totally new to Java CVS. I wish to download some tools / programs from
source-forge which are updated using CVS (and downloadable using CVS) -> hence
I've landed here

I use Win XP. I'm finding command line CVS a little difficult. I am **not** a
Java programmer

Can I use Java CVS as a stand alone to grab changes to the said programs from
source forge (without any prior knowledge of Java) ?


If that isn't possible could you please recommend other CVS clients for Windows
XP ?

Thanks in Advance



How to install jCVS on a Windows PC

1. Download and install Java 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition Version
1.4.x from http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/download.html. NOTE: Click the
"Download J2SE JRE" link.

2. Install Java 2 Runtime Environment (this is a prerequisite to run Java Apps)

3. Download jCVS II - Release 5.4.2 client from
http://www.jcvs.org/download.html. NOTE: Click either the "FTP" or "HTTP" link
under "Binary Distribution".

4. Unzip the jcvsii-bin-5.4.2.zip file to a location of your choice. All the
unzipped files will reside in a folder called something like jCVS-5.4.2. The
files are "installed" by simply unzipping the directory tree.

5. Run jCVS by double-clicking (running) the following file:



- If you do not have a zip/unzip utility go to http://www.winzip.com and
download WinZip 9.x.

- The jCVS help is not very good. While jCVS is an excellent GUI interface for
CVS, you still need to know some CVS basics to be useful. Post further questions
as they arise.

- FYI: A command line version of CVS is available at http://www.cvshome.org
