Is there an easier way?

  • Does anyone know if there are tools for getting files from the source-forge CVS? Specifically, I'd like to get my hands on:
    http://wxcode.cvs.sourceforge.net/wxcode/wxCode/components/wxspellchecker/
    but they only have CVS, no tar ball. I finally got something for subversion (called RapidSVN, see http://rapidsvn.tigris.org/ - you still need subversion installed, of course) but I don't think it works for CVS. Anyone have suggestions?

    Cheers,
    Fil

      Hello, Filip.

      You can download cvs client from http://www.march-hare.com/cvspro/ for example.

      Then in command line you type:

      cd \directory you want sources to be in
      cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@wxcode.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/wxcode login
      cvs  -d:pserver:anonymous@wxcode.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/wxcode checkout wxCode/components/wxspellchecker

      When system prompts for password just press enter.

      I hope this will help.

      Regards, Dmitri.
