The manual states that the -j option has the handy date specifier, i.e. -jSymbolic_Tag:Date_Specifier but that doesn't work with the -r option. If I update to the branch first, then try to impose a date specification: cvs update -rSymbolic_Tag <file> cvs update -DDate_Specifier <file> ...then the -D option cancels the sticky tag from the -r and updates to the relevant HEAD version instead. I'm probably being thick here but I can't see how to get the equivalent of the hypothetical command cvs update -rSymbolic_Tag:Date_Specifier <file> Anyone?
