thanks for you comment (I am still learning CVS).

Mhhh, I did following:

cd v.digit/
rm main.c    # the old unused one
cvs rm main.c
mv bin_digit.c main.c
cvs add main.c
cvs ci -m"renamed bin_digit.c to main.c" bin_digit.c main.c

Looking into ATTIC shows:
-> bin_digit.c 

Isn't that correct?

For my convenience I wrote two scripts:

 - cvs.r.add # add a full directory with comments to CVS
 - cvs.remove # remove a directory

These scripts consist of many cvs add, cvs rm and cvs ci

Perhaps my below message from yesterday was a bit confusing
(at least for Justin). Generally I am always using the cvs 
commands (hopefully properly, otherwise please complain). 
The missing commit from yesterday was due to a hardware 
problem over here. Of course I should never announce before 
committing! My apologies...

Excuse me and thank you for your valuable comments!
As Bernhard stated: It is good to have you here!
