PROGRAM:

NAME


cvsdelta - Manage and summarize the differences between a CVS project and local files.

SYNOPSIS


cvsdelta [options] [file ...]

DESCRIPTION


Manages and summarizes the differences between a CVS project and local files, showing the
changes of the files themselves and of their contents. Added, changed, and deleted files
are denoted with `+', `*', and `-' respectively. The number of lines are displayed.

OPTIONS


-a, --adds
Display the files that were added. This is done by default.

-A, --no-adds
Do not display the files that were added. The default is to show the added files.

--banner, --no-banner
Whether to show the banner, i.e., the header and footer of the output table. By
default, the banner is displayed.

-c, --changes
Display the files that were changed. This is done by default.

-C, --no-changes, --nodiff
Do not compare files that exist locally and in CVS. This executes significantly
faster, and is useful for when one only wants to add and remove files, without getting
the summary of the changes. It is also helpful for dealing with situations where CVS
seems to hang after producing diff output, although changing the compression level can
help with this. The default is to show the changed files.

-d, --deletes
Display the files that were deleted. This is done by default.

-D, --no-deletes
Do not display the files that were deleted. The default is to show the files that were
deleted.

-e, --execute
Execute the associated CVS commands ("add" and "remove") for the added and deleted
files.

-f DATE, --from-date DATE
Compare the files to their version as of the given date, rather than their current
version in CVS. The date is expected to be in CVS format, for example, 2002/12/31.

-F REVISION, --from-revision REVISION
Compare the files to their version as of the given revision, rather than their current
version in CVS.

-h, --help
Display a help message.

-i, --confirm
Interactively confirm deleted files with the user before removing them from CVS. The
default is simply to execute the remove command for relevant files. This option is
valid only with the --execute option.

--progress, --no-progress
Whether to show the progress meter as the program is working with CVS. By default,
this is not shown.

-q, --quiet
Run with minimum output. In quiet mode, the progress meter is not displayed.

-s, --skip-unknown-directories
Skip directories that are not in CVS. The default behavior is to process all
subdirectories.

-t DATE, --to-date DATE
Compare the files to their version as of the given date, rather than to the local
files. The date is expected to be in CVS format, for example, 2001/08/21. This option
is valid only with the --from-date or --from-revision options.

-T REVISION, --to-revision REVISION
Compare the files to their version as of the given revision, rather than to the local
files. This is valid only with the --from-date or --from-revision options.

-v, --version
Display the version and exit.

-V, --verbose
Run with maximum output, which is written to standard error.

-z [LEVEL], ---compression [LEVEL]
Set the compression to the given level for net traffic. This can be useful if the CVS
server seems to hang. The default level is 3; 0 and 9 work well.

ARGUMENTS


Arguments may be either files or directories.

File
If a file is provided, it is compared against the equivalent in CVS, if any. The
.cvsignore files are applied, so that although the file was explicitly provided, it
may be ignored.

Directory
Directories are processed recursively for files that are not filtered out by
.cvsignore files.

EXAMPLES


% cvsdelta

Lists the changed files.

% cvsdelta --execute

Lists the changed files, and executes the associated add and remove commands.

% cvsdelta --compression 9 --execute --confirm --no-changes

Run with the maximum compression level. Add and remove the appropriate files, but get
confirmation from the user before removing any files. Do not compare files that exist both
locally and in CVS.

ENVIRONMENT


$HOME/.cvsdeltarc, .../project/.cvsdeltarc
Resource files containing name/value pairs, separated by either ':' or '='. The valid
fields of a .cvsdeltarc file are as follows, with their default values:

quiet: false
verbose: false
execute: false
confirm: false
diff: true
compression: 3
adds: true
changes: true
deletes: true
skip-unknown-directories: false
banner: true

"yes" and "on" are synonymnous with "true". "no" and "off" signify "false".

The values in the project .cvsdeltarc file will override those in the user's
.cvsdeltarc file. The project .cvsdeltarc is assumed to be at the topmost directory in
the local file hierarchy.

CVSDELTAOPTS
A string of whitespace-delimited options, the same as listed above. These values
override those of the resource files.

NOTES


If a file exists in the CVS project but not locally, it is assumed that the file has been
deleted, not that it may have been recently added by another user. The --confirm option
can be used to deal with this situation.
