NAME

fixcvsdiff - fix problematic diff files

SYNOPSIS

TagDescription
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 \(lqIndex:\(rq in order for the correction to work.

OPTIONS

TagDescription
-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)
