I think you mean "cvs update -P -d"
Try "cvs --help update" to see the available options.
It's been a while since I used WinCVS, but I think it shows the exact 
command line it's executing (or perhaps it's hidden and you can turn 
it on). This should give you an idea of what your perl script should do.
