PORTCVSWEB(1)		  BSD General Commands Manual		 PORTCVSWEB(1)

NAME
     portcvsweb	-- a tool to instantly browse a	history	via CVSweb

SYNOPSIS
     portcvsweb	[-hqv]
		[pkgname_glob |	ports_glob | file | directory |	cvs_module_alias | dead	port]

DESCRIPTION
     The portcvsweb command invokes the	first available	web browser in w3m,
     lynx, links, mozilla and netscape (or the ones listed in BROWSER if set)
     to	view the CVS history of	a given	port, file, directory, or module via
     the CVSweb.  If no	file is	given, the current directory is	assumed.

     To	detect which repository	the file/directory belongs and what revision
     it	is, portcvsweb reads the CVS/* files if	found, or scans	the given file
     for a CVS tag.  If	the file does not contain a CVS	tag, it	scans the
     Makefile in the directory.	 If yet	there is no Makefile in	the directory,
     it	moves up through the directory hierarchy until it finds	one.

     If	the given path doesn't exist in	the first place, portcvsweb assumes it
     should be under the ports tree, which assumption allows specifying	a
     deleted ports directory/file.

     Currently portcvsweb recognizes FreeBSD, NetBSD and OpenBSD tags, and the
     one whichever comes first is used.

OPTIONS
     The following command line	arguments are supported:

     pkgname_glob
     portorigin_glob	    Pick the first port	that matched the given pat-
			    tern.  See pkg_glob(1) and portorigin_glob(1) for
			    details and	concrete examples.

     file
     directory		    Pick the file or the directory if it exists.
     cvs_module_alias
     dead port		    recognizes these too.

     -h
     --help		    Show help and exit.

     -q
     --noconfig		    Do not read	the configuration file -
			    $PREFIX/etc/pkgtools.conf.

     -v
     --verbose		    Turn on verbose output.

ENVIRONMENT
     BROWSER  Alternative WWW browser.	Default	is
	      "w3m:lynx:links:mozilla:netscape".

SEE ALSO
     pkgtools.conf(5), ports(7)

BUGS
     Since a NetBSD or OpenBSD tag does	not contain a path component, when
     portcvsweb	detects	a NetBSD or OpenBSD tag	but there is no	CVS/* files in
     the directory, it assumes that it belongs to NetBSD pkgsrc	or OpenBSD
     ports.
