The Apache::CVS::File class implements a typical CVS file.

Apache::CVS::File->new($path, $rcs_config)

Construct a new Apache::CVS::File object. The first argument is the full path of the file. The second is a RCS configuration object.


Get an Rcs object associated with this file.


Get or set the path of this file.


Returns a reference to a list of Apache::CVS::Revision objects in no particular order.


Returns a Apache::CVS::Revision object for the given index. The index can be an absolute revision number (1.1, 1.2, or one of the following: first, next, prev, last. Using the 'next' index on the first invocation of this method result in the same thing as using 'first'. Similarly using 'prev' on the first invocation is the same and using 'last'. If no revision can be found, the method will return undef.
