Is there any way to check out a single file from CVS using Eclipse?
When I select a folder in the CVS repositories perspective, I get several checkout options, but when I select a single file, I get none.
Regards
Anders

If you double-click the file in the CVS explorer perspective, it will open the file in an editor. You may not have commit rights, etc, but you at least get a copy of it in an editor.

No, but I want this feature too. There's an open enhancement request that you can add your vote to:
