1.3 A sample session

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 2 The Repository); this section assumes that a repository is set up.

Suppose you are working on a simple compiler. The source consists of a handful of C files and a ‘Makefile’. The compiler is called ‘tc’ (Trivial Compiler), and the repository is set up so that there is a module called ‘tc’.
