Wing's documentation on the subject is at:


I'd highly recommend using _some_ revision control system.  It provides
a backup of your code, lets you revert or inspect your current changes,
allows multiple developers to work concurrently much more easily, and
can be useful when trying to determine the origin or intent of
problematic code.

Of the two, I'd recommend Subversion.  It's more fixes some of the
nastier issues in CVS and is under active development.
