CVSDELTA(1)			cvsdelta 1.7.0			   CVSDELTA(1)

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 con-
       tents. 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 out-
	   put 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	fil-
	   tered 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	situa-
       tion.
