What do you mean by "everything"?
Do you mean that the contents of the files also should be sent to the
console? What about binary files then?

You can try the -p option, it pipes the files to standard output, but
be aware of the problems with binary files. If you have binary files
there you will get problems.
If you then add the file redirection like > yourfile.txt it sends the
files to this file, but for some reason the dividers are still on the
screen. Maybe a bug in cvsnt implementation?

cvs co -p Yourmodule > yourmodule.txt

This gets a screen with the dividers and names and all else (the
files) go to the file.
