Is it possible to get the history information of a file from CVS something similar to VSS - show history?
Let me explain the scenerio more precisely:
Step1. Create a test.txt file and add it to VSS ( Now version1 of test.txt is available in VSS)
Step2. Now Label the test.txt file / (parent folder of test.txt file) as ReleaseOne.
Step3. Checkout test.txt file and make somechanges to the test.txt file and Check it in.
If we click on test.txt file and say SHOW HISTORY, it displays
Version User Date Comment

If we follow the above three steps in cvs, We get the tag (label in vss) first (irrespective of the way it is created)
, then the versions.Is there a way to get the history informations similar to VSS. i.e File version and labels
in the sequential order as it is created?
