Concurrent Versions System Submitted by : Katyayni Singh Computer Science and Engg. 3rd year 0910410028
CVS is a version control system, an important component of Source Configuration Management (SCM). Using it, you can record the history of sources files, and documents. CVS may be used in any platform/OS, such as windows, linux, macOS etc. In windows we require cygwin for using CVS.
It is based on client-server architecture. Version control system software keeps track of all work and all changes in a set of files, and allows several developers (potentially widely separated in space and/or time) to collaborate.
There are many tools for CVS in windows, such as: tortoiseCVS, git etc.Here we are installing git. The steps are as follows: Download cygwin.exe for http://www.cygwin.com/setup.exe Install cygwin in default cases.
It is to remember that local root directory should be c:program filesmozila firefox
Click on ‘next’ for every other step. Next thing is to choose a download site from the list to download packages.
After downloading, select all(by default) packages.
After completing installation of cygwin click on the ‘finish’ button.
After installing cygwin, now download msysgit exe file from http://www.git-scm.com/download. While installing git, the points worth remembering are: Destination location should be ‘c:program filesgit’where should setup be installed The select start menu folder should be ‘Git’ where the setup place the program’s shortcut
