How to manage the code?

P: n/a
Hi all,

I have to package all the code to a zip file and rename it with date.
Like Proj_051101.zip. But it's not convenient. I use software like CVS
in company, but it seems must be run on server.
Is there any software run on PC for personal usage?

If this post should not be posted here, please let me know, thanks!

Any suggestions will be appreciated!
Best regards,
Davy

AFAIK, it doesn't have to be.

www.cygwin.com, maybe?...

It definitely should not be posted here because you don't ask any C or
C++ language questions. If you need help on using your OS, try a forum
for your OS first.

Wrong place indeed.

This said:
- A comparison of version control systems is available
at http://better-scm.berlios.de/comparison/comparison.html

- An easy-to-use system ideal for standalone use is Reliable
Software's Code Co-op - but it is Windows-only and not free.
See http://www.relisoft.com/co_op/
I strongly recommend it for small project teams, distributed
teams, and even to back-up/synchronize your own personal
files on multiple machines.

Is there any software run on PC for personal usage? Try Googling for "cvs.exe"

OK. It should not have been posted here! :-)

No, you can set up local CVS repositories. Consult the CVS manual for
further information.

Because that's exactly what he is looking for.

It's called 'deductive reasoning'.
OP is looking for an equivalent to cvs to run on his PC.
The OS on his PC is not unix based or he'd be running
cvs on it already! (A quick peek at OP's message headers
verify that he is in fact running a flavor of Microsoft Windows.)
Knowing that there is a version of cvs written for windows
appropriately named 'cvs.exe' which can be downloaded freely
from various sites on the web, I told him how to find it.

What would you recommend?
Ah, nevermind, I see it in your next post... nothing useful!
You responded to the description of the problem and
completely ignored his question... next time try reading
the question before answering ;-)

Another hint would be a nice GUI frontend for CVS: wincvs

CVS will run on any machine, including your own, so you can have a local
dipository. Myself, I use SVN which does pretty much the same thing.

But you should be able to set up a CVS or SVN dipository on your own
machine, or any machine you want, and use that. And they are both
opensource AFAIK. I know for a fact SVN is.

Many. For MS-Windows, if you are familiar with CVS
a cvsnt server can run on your own machine.

See

You ahould be able to do that with a simple script / batch file using a
command-line zip utility.
