Updating Your Working Copy of a Site

To bring your working copy of a site up-to-date with the CVS site server, use the cvs update command to automatically compare your working copy with the site repository and copy across any files that have changed since you last worked with them. To update your working copy, change into the folder that contains your working copy of the site and issue the cvs update command, like this:

$ cd ~/development/interactivate.com/apps
$ cvs -q update -dP
? analog/.htaccess
U auth/htpasswd
U hours/index.phtml
U hours/data/icg-timelog-1998-01.txt
...
$

That's it! if there are new files available, you've now got a copy on your desktop, available for review and editing. There's really nothing special you need to do or change about your web development working habits--just edit and create files as you normally would. Use whatever HTML editor and creation tools you're comfortable with.
