How to delete a module from the CVS Repository

How to delete a module from the CVS Repository

How to delete a module from the CVS Repository

Hello Sir,

 In my office we are using CVS software. CVS is installed in the server (linux). Clients will checkout from the Repository. I wanted to know how to delete a module from the CVS Repository. Please help me in this regard.


RE: How to delete a module from the CVS Repository

The safe way is to call check out the module and call cvs remove on all the files.

If you have a backup or never want to see the module again, just delete the modules directory on the server side.

For example, if your module name is myapp and your cvs repository (on linux) is in /usr/local/cvsroot then:

cd /usr/local/cvsroot
rm -rf myapp

Phew, Thanks for that.

I created a module and had a typo in the name! I've since corrected it, but I've now got 2 modules, one spelt correctly, and one incorrect.

I've spent all morning trying to figure out how to trash the incorrect one, I thought about trashing it manually, but I didnt want to break anything!

Thanks again. (Tek-Tips forms rock!)
