OT: CVS

Discussion in 'C++' started by Gernot Frisch, Dec 1, 2004.

  1. Hi,

    we have a project, that 2 developers work on. Now we need a software
    that can apply changes from one to the other automatically after work.
    What software do you recommend?

    What if 2 change the same file at one day - can a CVS fix this, too?
    How often would I have to "update" the files?

    Any good starting point? We're pretty short on time, but I think it's
    totally wrong to work on 2 sources from now on and "try" to combine
    them manually some time - which will never happen after some time...

    Thank you for not flaming, but helping - I didn't know where else to
    ask.

    Two or more developers can change a file at the one day. I would
    suggest that some policies be agreed upon before CVS is used in
    ernest. Some policies you may consider are always do an update of your
    sandbox before checking in your latest changes, or do not ever check
    in source code that will break the build.

    Don't forget that CVS is only a tool that helps the task of managing
    source code. It is not the "silver bullet" that will kill all those
    trickly source code management issues.

    Good luck!
