Show all modules:
I lifted this from my friend Joels website, www.gadgetwiz.com, and have found myself using it many times:
List all directories in cvs
I accidentally typed this command and recieved a list of all the cvs root directories available for checkout. Other commands to list modules did not work, but this one did. You must be in a CVS directory first.
cvs -n co .
Recursively show all files:
Have you ever worked in a CVS module, added a deep tree of directories and files and needed to add them to CVS. If you have, you may have had to go through a painful process of adding one dir at a time, then all the files in that dir, then repeat until you’ve done all the dirs. I have a solution for that:
Just run this over and over again, until all files are added:
Note: careful, prune your directories first, it will add all files it finds!
cvs add `cvs -q update | egrep “^? ” | sed -e ‘s/..//’`
cvs -q update
are all your files added? If not, repeat process until they are.
