Re: Manually access my files stored by cvsd

You can use cvs(1) directly on the repository tree.  

        cvs -d /<path to repository>/ [command]

will allow the same sort of access cvsd(8) allowed, only going
through the filesystem rather than the network.

If the files are corrupted such that cvs(1) can't process them,
you can try using the rcs suite of tools. (ci(1), co(1), rcs(1),
rcsdiff(1), etc.)
