    Source Code Control Systems

    I read a book and it said that I should use a source code control system. I looked up what it is and it sounded pretty cool but I can't find a good one. I was going to go with CVS but I want something I can download since I userally program while off line. Then I was going to go with MKS but its expensive. Then as a last resort I was going to user PVCS configuration management but I download it and it has over 20 executables with no instructions on how to set it up :-(
    So does anyone know of a downloadable stand-alone SCCS s perferbly free? I know this is asking alot but a guy can dream can't he?

    What's wrong with CVS?

    From the CVS Book

    http://cvsbook.red-bean.com/cvsbook....Installing_CVS

    "The Windows and Macintosh distributions of CVS are generally limited in functionality. They can all act as clients, meaning that they can contact a repository server to obtain a working copy, commit, update, and so on. But they can't serve repositories themselves. If you set it up right, the Windows port can use a local-disk repository, but it still can't serve projects from that repository to other machines. In general, if you want to have a network-accessible CVS repository, you must run the CVS server on a Unix box. "

    I don't know what OS you are running, but you can run a local CVS system on windows.
    Prove you can code in C++ or C# at TopCoder, referrer rrenaud

    I'm running a mostly windows box. I do have Linux installed but my modem/sound /video / network cardsdont have drivers. I didnt see that in the CVS manual. Maybe I'll have another look. But do you know of anyonther systems?

    Another free CM tool:
    CS-RCS

    Hmm, didn't know that PVCS also had a free version. At work we used to use PVCS, but since this tool doesn't support things like parallel development and multi-site development, we now use Continuus.
