I have a project checked out of my CVS respository, and I have made a great deal of changes.
I have grown weary of the changes I made and would like to start over, with a clean copy of the code from CVS.
At the command line I would use the -C switch:
cvs update -P -d -C (in directory C:\Eclipse2.1.3\workspace\<my project>\)
How would I do something similar in Eclipse.
Additionally, I very much enjoy the CVS console view, and have added to most of the perspectives I use. The only thing that frustrates me is I would like to use the console to enter CVS commands as if I was at the command line, is there any way to achieve this with Eclipse?
Thanks in advance for your time [ June 22, 2004: Message edited by: Keith Tingle ]
If you choose 'Team->Syncronize with Repository' from the context menu in the Package Viewer you should be taken to the 'Team Syncronize' perspective. From there you can select the top level directory and from the context menu choose 'Over Ride and Update'.
I don't know of a way that you can use the command line from with in Eclipse but you can always go out to the command line if you'd like. Just make sure to do a Refresh in the Package Viewer once the command line processing is finished.

Or simply choose 'Replace with->Latest from Head' from the context menu.
