you from CVS's command line. I've read good things about TortoiseCVS
wich integrates with the explorer shell and becomes a contextual menu
you use on folders and files. And for the more conservative there is
WinCVS, which is a stand-alone application. I haven't used either tool
in earnest. But I've used tkCVS with cygwin, which gives you nice
graphical representations of a CVS repository change history.
BTW, both tools mentioned above do not use CVS. Rather use CVSNT, a
fork that not only is fully compatible with CVS but is a fully working
win32 server and supports advanced branching and merging not available
by the original CVS code. The original CVS Win32 port is client only.
