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 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, patch, cvs(1)
