This is what I have done so far:
ssh -l pmenso57 cvs.boost.sourceforge.net
cvs checkout boost
At this point, everything seems to be working. All the regular files got put
That directory does have the directories that you are talking about in it.
(boost/ libs more/ etc.) But if I do this...
cvs update -rmpl-development boost/mpl
...nothing happens. There are still no mpl files in the directory structure.
!!! Oh, okay I follow now. I need to do this:
cvs update -rmpl-development boost/boost/mpl

I looked at it briefly, but I'd rather just go buy the book--which I already
did--than read it off my screen or print it out.

Do you mean pig-slow? I had to chase a few of my sister's FFA pigs around the
neighborhood once. They were pretty small pigs, but they were fast hell. It
took my entire family and I about six hours to finally catch them.
