To Bo and Paul - thank you so much for your replies to my posts. Newbies can be a pain - I understand. What I had to do with this CVS thing, is go backwards a few steps before moving forward. RTFM. Even though the documentation is not well suited to Windoze users, it really helped me understand what CVS is, what it should do, and the basics of how to use it. More importantly - what we need it for and why we are going to use it. I was operating under some misunderstandings about how CVS funtions. I am not totally there yet of course, but working on it. I now have a repository setup and initialized. I can connect because I'm getting an error that says repository exists - but is empty - and of course it is empty because I have not imported anything into it yet. I am having trouble understanding the syntax of the import command. I have a directory with all the code in various subdirectories that I would like to CVS. Lets say this directory is c:\mystuff. My repository is under c:/cvsrepos/test. In a dos window I navigate to mystuff - then type the following: import -m "import code first time" mystuff/test WW start As I understand it - "import code first time" is simply a comment on the import - then should come what you would like to import - everything under mystuff, then putting it into /test with the final two arguments being the company initials or the Vtag and start a kind of default Rtag. I get the following error message: No CVS Root specified! Please use the -d option. CVS [import aborted]: or set the CVSROOT environment variable Any help appreciated. Later today I'm going to go get the O'Reilly CVS book. Thanks.
