NAME
       fixcvsdiff - fix	problematic diff files

SYNOPSIS
       fixcvsdiff [-p] [-b] [file...]

DESCRIPTION
       fixcvsdiff modifies diff	files created from the cvs diff	command, where
       files have been added or	removed. CVS tends to create diff files	that
       patch(1)	mis-interprets.	The diff file must retain the lines beginning
       with "Index:" in	order for the correction to work.

OPTIONS
       -b
	   Keep	a .bak backup file.

       -p
	   Print out the cvs add and cvs remove	commands that must be made
	   after applying the diff, but	before running cvs commit.

SEE ALSO
       diff(1),	patch(1), cvs(1)
