There is nothing much to implement, you can just start using these (assuming that the CVS server is in place). Does this answer your question?

ok so i can use textpad also for using winCVS in my system..
yes i have downloaded the software and installed in my system and i am trying to configure it by selecting create new repository in from remote menu item in wincvs applicationb and for now i am using my local system path as CVSROOT
some thing like this server;username=anonymous :\repos1
and in the output window i got this message
***** CVS exited normally with code 1 *****
so how can i congigure it correctly.. and how can i stor my source files in the repository the source files which are developed with using textpad
please help me out
How you talk to the CVS server and its repository are up to you. Many IDEs such as Eclipse and IntelliJ have the ability to interact with the CVS repository built right into them. TortoiseCVS is a Windows Shell plugin that allows you to do the same things but using the Windows File Manager (explorer) for the same purpose.
At the lowest level is the CVS command line:
This is a cygwin version of command-line interaction. Unix/Linux interaction is almost identical.
CVS doesn't know, care, or even want to know what tools you use to interact with its repository anymore than a good website knows what web browser you use. Its only purpose is to hold the authoritative copies of the projects, to maintain a history of their changes, and to provide copies of the projects when requested.
The seminal work on CVS, BTW is the "Cedarqvist" book. Although it's been around a few years, it still covers CVS quite well, though it considers CVS only from a command-line point of view.

well for now i am using my local system as server and i have installed wincvs software in my local system and ther is only one application (i.e wincvs)
i dont know about server and client
can you please tell me more on it :roll:
waiting for your reply message

yes i got it now i have installed the cvsnt server in my local system
and now i want to link this server to clint software (wincvs)
for this i tried to run server (opened cvs.exe) but i cn't see it in gui mode i think it's internally running in the background (refered it thru task manager)
apart from this cvs.exe i saw some more exe files cvsagent.exe , cvslock.exe , workplaceviewer.exe files
what are all these files should i need to run these files tooo for running the server?
everything is ok but..how can i configure my web application folder as a repository in cvs server
and one more help needed i have tried a lot for connecting to the server from wincvs
i have used these commands for connecting to server
cvs -d : local : firstname.lastname@example.org : c: \cvs login
cvs -d : local : email@example.com : /cvs/Archive login
but unable to connect in cvs server manual it is like this cvs -d /usr/local/cvsroot checkout yoyodyne/tc
but it doesn't work at all
so can you please tell me how to connect to the server (local sever) can you pass me the command
The command line generated by WinCVS for a login for me looks like:
cvs -d :pserver:[username]@[server]:[directory] login
so I'd say all the spaces you have in there are incorrect.
By the way, why are you repeatedly using the icon that sticks the tongue out at us? You're using too many smileys anyway, but that one really makes no sense.
