The beauty of open source is making code freely available. The curse is trying to organize the chaos that code development can evolve into. CVS, the Concurrent Version System, is an open source tool for managing and distributing source code. It allows multiple users dispersed over a wide geographic area to work on the same file at the same time, using a shared directory. Under CVS, multiple users can check out files from a directory tree, make changes, and then commit those changes back into the directory. CVS is a pivotal tool on many projects involving information or software, whether in-house or conducted over the Internet.
The CVS Pocket Reference is a quick reference guide to help administrators and users set up and manage source code development. This small book delivers the core concepts of version control along with a complete command reference and guide to configuration and repository set up. The book includes:
- A version control primer that teaches the general concepts of version control and how it applies to CVS.
- Instructions on how to install and configure CVS for Unix®-like operating systems.
- Administrator and user sections, with complete listings of their respective commands and options for configuring and using CVS.
- Details on how to import files from RCS and SCCS directories into CVS.
- References to related useful materials.
Gregor N. Purdy is a consultant, author, trainer, and lecturer on large-scale decision support system requirements, design, and implementation. He is also the author of various Perl modules and the Perl Shell. He uses CVS to manage his personal projects and those of his clients. He is also a contributor to the Comprehensive Perl Archive Network (CPAN) and to the ongoing development of the new Perl 6 virtual machine, Parrot.
O'Reilly unfortunately doesn't have a full blown book on CVS yet. In the meantime I recommend Open Source Development With CVS by Karl Franz Fogel, also available on Amazon.com.
However, there is extensive online documentation for CVS that goes into far greater depth than this book, is more up to date, and is free. Even though I've had the book, I've still needed to refer to this online documentation to learn the finer points of tags, branching, and other CVS features.
So it's really a matter of whether you want to pay to have some (but not all) useful information in a handy booklet. If that appeals to you, great, this isn't a bad book. But you can certainly live without it by using your computer as a reference tool.
If this is your first experience with CVS, this is not the book for you. However, if you have used CVS in the past... perfect reference tool.
If you want a real CVS reference, print out the official docs. It has much better info, serves as a great reference, and has an index as well as table of contents (neither of which are in this book).
