In my workspace I have renamed a file from old.c to new.c.
After having used
cvs add new.c
cvs delete old.c
commit -m "Change" old.c new.c

I want to make a diff between the first revision and the current

Therefore I use
cvs diff -N -rFirst -Newest > mypatch.patch

Using this patch in the original folder (first revision) my intention
is to delete the file old.c and create a new one new.c

patch -E < mypatch.patch

Unfortunately, new.c has not been created because of:

Hmm...  Looks like a normal diff to me...
can't find file to patch at input line 5
Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?
The text leading up to this was:
|Index: new.c
|RCS file: new.c
|diff -N new.c
File to patch:

So why is the new.c file not being created??? Any idea?

I am using WinXP with Cygwin and cvs version 1.11.12

Kind regards,
