hey guys, if i do a cvs update on trunk, am i getting the 'all tags / default branch' ???
it depends on the flags associated with the checkout you are updating
if you checked out with no flags or anything, then the update will bring you to the tip of trunk
if you checked out a branch, you'll get the tip of the branch
if you need more details, all I can suggest is "man cvs", that's what I'd have to do
i did ' cvs -z5 update -Pd' command, straight from the wiki docs on cvs.
that updates your checkout
what did you check out in the first place?
if you checked out a branch, it updates you along that branch - if you checked out trunk, it updates you along the trunk
ok, i used the wiki command: cvs -z5 -d:ext:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvs co emc2
i assumed i was getting the 'head'
that is a trunk checkout
ok, so i'm ok. i have updated to the latest and greatest changes. correct?
I would think so
you can check by reading VERSION
cooool. thanks. i am still working on my 5 axis gantry.
i see cradek added another 5 axis configuration, his 'max' setup.
someone asked earlier about putting comments in gcode files.,... if it's in 'trunk' you can use ';' to add comments. recently added.
still only affects a single line, just like the traditional () comments
the question earlier was about block comments - commenting out a bunch of code
ok. just gotta be quick and accurate with the arrow and ; keys.
I remember once years ago at work I was doing something like that
and somebody in an adjacent cubicle heard it
"hey. I hear a macro"
comes from the old days of 'card image' files for doing FEA work in batch mode on timeshare machines.
big cybers and crays on the other side of the country.
on a little tiny remote terminal crt.
ah, the old days.
thanks again for the assistance.
