Hello Marcus, Friday, May 24, 2002, 11:01:27 AM, you wrote: MP> It seems that I have misunderstood the meaning of doing an "cvs diff" or MP> "cvs update" with the "-D date" option. No, not realy. The diff on the main trunc is working like expected anyway. Only diff on branches requires an explicite revision number (reperesenting the branch). The update should also be used whith revision number/tag/branch. A date again only refers to the main trunc. MP> Is there no way to do operations MP> on a branch based on the time/date?

This feature is missing and should be added some time... But you can 'log' a specific file for geting the revision of the latest modification. Afterwards you can diff against that revision.

Yes, the docs are very sparse. But the output from cvs you send to the list is strange. If you do a "cvs diff -D yesterday foo.c", it should respond "no revision for date 2002.05.17.22.03.02 in file foo.c" or something similar. So what are the version of your server and client? If both is CVSNT, there might be a real bug! -- Best regards, Richard mailto:r.wirth at wirthware.de _______________________________________________ Cvsnt mailing list Cvsnt at cvsnt.org http://www.cvsnt.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/cvsnt https://www.march-hare.com/cvspro/en.asp#downcvs
