Essential CVS

Contributed by jose on from the yet-another-oreilly-book dept.

If you're like me, you use a lot of CVS, both at work and for personal projects. For example, my thesis, which was written in LaTeX, was stored in CVS. A new book by O'Reilly, Essential CVS , looks like a promising volume of information on how to use CVS. Basic usage isn't all that hard, but there are some complex scenarios CVS can really help with. A PDF of chapter 2 is online. Additionally, this O'ReillyNet article shows how to get started using the CVSROOT scripts.

Of course, you can always refer to the free parts of the CVS book from, as well.

    From reading the same chapter, it looks like it is one of the better O'Reilly books. Very concise and a quick read, while telling you what you need to know.

    I thought I'd mention it because I've read some of the worst O'Reilly books, such as NIS+NFS, and Server Load Balancing.
