Even better yet (each command goes in a single line):

prompt> cvs -d:pserver:anonymous at

	[hit Enter Key when prompeted for a password]

prompt> cvs -z3
-d:pserver:anonymous at checkout -d
python_demo_scripts -P dist/src/Demo 

prompt> cvs -z3
-d:pserver:anonymous at checkout -d
python_tool_scripts -P dist/src/Tools

And you'll have more examples than you can shake a stick at. Beats
downloading an 8 Mb tarball compressed with bzip2 at any rate.

If you are CVS challenged (not surprising if you haven't used anything
but Windows or MacOS during the duration of your natural life), go to and download the GUI client and to for a copy of the CVS book.
