Share files in CVS db

Hi!
I have used till now VisualSourceSafe for version controll.
In that version control you can put a file in different directories (Share) so that changes in one place will cause a change in the other one.
Is there a way to do it in CVS?
If so, how?
Thanks!

No native support of such functionality in CVS.
However you may create 'hard links' directly in CVS repository (on UNIX only) - it's a hack.
Or you may try to use triggers to organize your own way of such sharing.

Thanks Nopius,
How can I create a hard link?
Will it work ok or there are cases that it won't work?

Ok, I've used a soft link and it works:
cd <directory to create link at>
ln -s <source file>

Thanks!

hard links works only on files, for directories you have found soft links are ok :)
