It brings the last revision.

I wrote this small code to bring only tags ordered alphabetically.

No. How I would know it? I'm new to CVS, I'm learning it yet.

Yeees I sure did! Our case was very simple. All we want was to bring a
group of file(...30 maybe...) which were taged by two diferent tags.
That's all.
I just didn't know how to do it in Tortoise (which is the client we use here).

Sorry if I made my question seems complex. It wasn't actually.
I thought it was enough clear but..... Albert is right when he says
that "It is always the person who receives your request that is the
best judge as to whether that request is clear".

And I didn't mean to run out of the subject from this CVS mailing list
with these comments.
My apologizes for you Luigi, for Albert and for Glen, ok.

Let's get back to what we all do better... software.

Best regards!
