    Does anyone know of any good CVS software for macs? :confused:
    I am new to macs having just switched from pc's. I need some CVS software that will work with text files,html files, matlab files (which should be just like text files) and also and c++ code I develop for matlab. So if anyone has had any good experiences with any software I'd be greatful if you could help

    CVS client is built-in

    The standard command-line-client comes with OS X. You just have to install the developer tools.

    Yup, I have CVS installed and available to me in my Terminal.

    For quick access to a TON of other cool tools, look into installing a package called "Fink".

    Is there a decent GUI based version of CVS software? I'm to lazy (most of the time) to want to endlessly type things in the command window! ;)

    I've been using MacCvsX for a year or so now. It's pretty basic, nothing fancy.

    http://cvsgui.sourceforge.net

    I think there's also "MacCvs" (without the X). Try asking versiontracker.

    We use SmartCVS on Solaris and Windows. It's pure Java, so it should work on the Mac.

    Cheers I've downloaded MacCvsX and had a play with it, seems to do everything I want so I'll use that.

    Now to spend the day downloading all the updates for my new ibook whilst watching the cricket.....happy days


    CVL seems to be quite good as well, http://sente.epfl.ch/software/cvl/ I'll play with both of them to see which one i prefer
