About Project

phpCVSview was initially started in 2001 by Brian Cheeseman. The idea behind phpCVSview was to be a web based CVS viewer written in PHP and an alternative to current CVS viewers written in Python or Perl language. Brian thought a PHP web based CVS viewer would be more portable and more versatile that currently available viewers.

PhpCVSview, like many other CVS viewers, has the ability to view CVS files online. It also has the capability of displaying file revisions, downloading a specific file revision, code syntax highlighting (GeSHI), show complete module list and themeing capability. PhpCVSview would like to do more than just that. It would like to provide the ability to get CVS files from other protocols, other than pserver, like ext, local and ssh.
