Remove single revision of a file from CVS

To remove a version of a file from CVS (careful!), e.g., remove vsn 1.3, but keep 1.2
cvs admin -o1.3 myfile [where 'o' stands for 'outdates']

To TOTALLY remove a file from the current directory and CVS repository :

rm myfileisjunk
cvs remove myfileisjunk
cvs commit -m"no longer needed (IS)" myfileisjunk
