NAMEcvs - Concurrent Versions System support files
NOTEThis documentation may no longer be up to date. Please consult the Cederqvist (CVS Manual) as specified in cvs(1).
DESCRIPTIONcvs is a system for providing source control to hierarchical collections of source directories. Commands and procedures for using cvs are described in cvs(1).
The `modules' file records your definitions of names for collections of source code. cvs will use these definitions if you use cvs to check in a file with the right format to ` $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/modules,v'.
mname [ options ] dir [ files... ] [ &module... ]
m4test unsupported/gnu/m4 foreach.m4 forloop.m4
- commitinfo, loginfo, rcsinfo, editinfo
These files all specify programs to call at different points in the ` cvs commit' process. They have a common structure. Each line is a pair of fields: a regular expression, separated by whitespace from a filename or command-line template. Whenever one of the regular expression matches a directory name in the repository, the rest of the line is used. If the line begins with a # character, the entire line is considered a comment and is ignored. Whitespace between the fields is also ignored.
- cvsignore, .cvsignore
- The default list of files (or sh(1) file name patterns) to ignore during ` cvs update'. At startup time, cvs loads the compiled in default list of file name patterns (see cvs(1)). Then the per-repository list included in $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/cvsignore is loaded, if it exists. Then the per-user list is loaded from `$HOME/.cvsignore'. Finally, as cvs traverses through your directories, it will load any per-directory `.cvsignore' files whenever it finds one. These per-directory files are only valid for exactly the directory that contains them, not for any sub-directories.
- Create this file in $CVSROOT/CVSROOT to enable history logging (see the description of ` cvs history').
