cvs-switchroot — change repository or tag in a cvs working copy


cvs-switchroot [-T] newroot [file ...]

cvs-switchroot [-T] - srcpath [file ...]


The cvs-switchroot utility manipulates a CVS working copy directly, modifying the
information stored in the administrative subdirectory and saving space by hardlinking if

If the -T option is given, the sticky tag is operated on, otherwise, the repository path

The information (Tag or Root) is set to the same as in srcpath if the first non-option
argument newroot is a sole dash (‘-’), the literal value newroot otherwise.


Change all Root information in the current sandbox to /cvs:

$ cvs-switchroot /cvs .

Set all roots in the current working directory and all its subdirectories to the Root of the
parent directory:

$ cvs-switchroot - .. .

Hardlink the Tag information in the current working directory, for example /usr/src, and
/usr/ports with each other:

$ cvs-switchroot -T - . . /usr/ports

Use cvs-switchroot online using onworks.net services
