[18:25:09] <Roguish> hey guys, if i do a cvs update on trunk, am i getting the 'all tags / default branch' ???
[18:45:38] <jmkasunich> it depends on the flags associated with the checkout you are updating
[18:45:58] <jmkasunich> if you checked out with no flags or anything, then the update will bring you to the tip of trunk
[18:46:06] <jmkasunich> if you checked out a branch, you'll get the tip of the branch
[18:46:36] <jmkasunich> if you need more details, all I can suggest is "man cvs", that's what I'd have to do
[18:53:36] <Roguish> i did ' cvs -z5 update -Pd' command, straight from the wiki docs on cvs.
[18:54:51] <jmkasunich> that updates your checkout
[18:55:05] <jmkasunich> what did you check out in the first place?
[18:55:24] <jmkasunich> if you checked out a branch, it updates you along that branch - if you checked out trunk, it updates you along the trunk
[18:56:40] <Roguish> ok, i used the wiki command: cvs -z5 -d:ext:anon@cvs.linuxcnc.org:/cvs co emc2
[18:57:01] <Roguish> i assumed i was getting the 'head'
[18:57:20] <jmkasunich> that is a trunk checkout
[18:57:59] <Roguish> ok, so i'm ok. i have updated to the latest and greatest changes. correct?
[18:58:21] <jmkasunich> I would think so
[18:58:45] <alex_joni> you can check by reading VERSION
[18:58:52] <Roguish> cooool. thanks. i am still working on my 5 axis gantry.
[18:59:46] <Roguish> i see cradek added another 5 axis configuration, his 'max' setup.
[19:03:01] <Roguish> someone asked earlier about putting comments in gcode files.,... if it's in 'trunk' you can use ';' to add comments. recently added.
[19:03:28] <jmkasunich> still only affects a single line, just like the traditional () comments
[19:03:34] <Roguish> yes.
[19:03:40] <jmkasunich> the question earlier was about block comments - commenting out a bunch of code
[19:04:20] <Roguish> ok. just gotta be quick and accurate with the arrow and ; keys.
[19:04:58] <jmkasunich> heh
[19:05:10] <jmkasunich> I remember once years ago at work I was doing something like that
[19:05:26] <jmkasunich> and somebody in an adjacent cubicle heard it
[19:05:35] <jmkasunich> "hey. I hear a macro"
[19:05:49] <Roguish> comes from the old days of 'card image' files for doing FEA work in batch mode on timeshare machines.
[19:06:16] <Roguish> big cybers and crays on the other side of the country.
[19:06:56] <Roguish> on a little tiny remote terminal crt.
[19:07:11] <Roguish> ah, the old days.
[19:08:08] <Roguish> thanks again for the assistance.
