1.3.7. Updating a Working Copy

To update a working copy and get the latest changes from a CVS repository, change to the directory with the working copy and run the following command:
cvs update

Example 1.23. Updating a working copy

Imagine that the directory with your working copy of a CVS repository has the following contents:
project]$ ls
AUTHORS  CVS  doc  INSTALL  LICENSE  Makefile  README  src TODO
Also imagine that somebody recently added ChangeLog to the repository, removed the TODO file from it, and made some changes to Makefile. To update this working copy, type:
myproject]$ cvs update
cvs update: Updating .
U ChangeLog
U Makefile
cvs update: TODO is no longer in the repository
cvs update: Updating doc
cvs update: Updating src
