Long story short...
I wrote a CLI events calendar for Linux in C++ (one of my first major C++ programs), and it came to around 2400 lines of code. I've been working on it for a few weeks now getting things just right.
I just finished getting a decent working copy of the program and copied the executable to my /usr/local/bin directory (linux) so I could play with it some.
I, then, decided it'd be a good idea to set up a local CVS repository so I can do some version tracking, since NetBeans supports this. In the process, I set my home directory to the cvs repository directory and entered "cvs init"
My home directory got wiped and, frankly, I didn't mind losing anything else except for this program I had been working on for a while.
How would I go about retrieving this? I imagine it's considered a deleted file...?
Is there a way to reverse engineer the code? The program functions as it is, but I don't feel it's really "complete" yet, so I want the ability to continue editing it from where it is until I feel it's more or less finished.
I'll chalk this one up to not backing it up...I know I should have, especially more often. But this very rarely happens to me and the thought didn't even cross my mind.
If it's really not too retrievable, I guess I'll leave it as-is (functional, but missing some features imo), and move onto a new programming project.
Thanks in advance
