When I type in command
cvs -d co [dirname]
using bash shell on my local linux machine to check out what's in the remote cvs repository, I get
Unknown command: 'dirname'
What are the possible reasons for getting this?
Details of what I did:
I have added
HostName [host name]
User [login name]
and I've also set environment variable as
export CVSROOT=:ext:[host name]:/[root dir of repository]/CVSROOT
and finally, in order for these values to be set every time I use the computer, I put these export commands in the file (~/.bashrc) that loads my local setting at startup.
Then I typed in the command: cvs -d co [dirname]
