This is an old revision of the document!
Change to the directory containing the code you want to brach from (ex. use
cvs co -r [tagname] to branch old tagged code).
Now you can add the branch by issuing the following command:
cvs rtag -b [new branchname] [my_module]
Finish changes to the working directory, then
Example branching at revision tag
cvs -d /mnt/data/CVSHOME co -r R1 miav cd miav cvs rtag -b B1 miav # do some changes in the code cvs commit -m"Made a change in a branch"
