One answer received suggested :
check out 'Razor' from Tower Concepts (www.tower.com).

Many places to download from:
www.cyclic.com has a number of useful links and good explanations.
Also some faq's available:
Check out http://www.loria.fr/~molli/cvs/cvs-FAQ/cvsfaq3.html for more
Thanx again to everybody and a great mailing list. Great to have so many
friends at your finger tips. Catch you later on the net.
Just another SUN friend.
