How to get igns

Create a new folder to put your copy of the code and change to this directory.

Set the CVSROOT environment variable. If you are logged in the BIC network, this variable must be set to =/private-cvsroot=. From outside the BIC, set it to where username is your BIC login. Here is how you do it in tcsh:

setenv CVSROOT /private-cvsroot 
setenv CVSROOT

Checkout your copy of IGNS:

cvs co -P Igns

Checking out the CVS code doesn’t require any special permission. However, if you want to be able to check-in any changes to the repository, you need to be part of the “igns” and “coders” groups.
