Check out the file first, ie: cvs -d :pserver:user at host:/repo co module cd module cvs edit A.txt . . . cvs commit -m "here are my changes" A.txt If the file A.txt is set for exclusive edits (mode kx) then the 'cvs edit' command 'locks' it. Finally - you can only 'change' the most recent revision of a file. Ie: if a file has the revisions 1.1, 1.2 and 1.3 you cannot checkout version 1.2 and make a change and commit that as 1.4. There are various ways to achieve this result but they are more complex that what I am going to explain here, and since I suspect that revision 1.3 in your expample is the 'top' revision you don't need to know this yet.
