The cvs and sub-commands provide MicroEmacs with an interface to cvs(1). CVS is a version control system; using it, you can record the history of your source file modifications. CVS is licensed under the GNU General Public License and is freely available on the Internet, see the documentation provided with CVS for more information on its features and use.
The MicroEmacs cvs command opens up a modified file-browser(3) with an additional "*cvs-console*" window. The "*files*" window includes additional columns showing the CVS state, revision and repository date. The functionality of the file-browser is the same as a non-CVS folder with the exception that additional CVS item controls are located in the mouse context menu (opened by clicking the right mouse button in the *files* buffer). This menu item opens another sub-menu providing access to the items below. When selecting commands than a pop-up check-box may be displayed which allows options to be selected for the command.
The *cvs-state* buffer supports some of the same features as a directory listing, the files can be loaded (using return or left click on the file name), selected (using space or left mouse button on the left hand edge) and CVS commands executed from the window operate either on the selected files or the listed files if no files are selected. This runs the command "cvs -nq update <files>".
Clear cvs console
The cvs-add command adds the current buffers file to the repository. Note that this command only performs the local addition, a CVS commit is required to make the addition permanent.
The cvs-checkout command checks out a file or directory from the repository into the current directory. The user specifies the file on the message line.
The cvs-commit command commits any changes made to the currently buffer's file (including additions) to the repository. The user is prompted for a commit log message.
The cvs-diff command opens a *cvs-diff* window displaying the differences between the current buffer's local file and repository version. If the current buffer is a directory list it will list all the differences found in all files within the directory.
The cvs-gdiff command opens a gdiff(3) window displaying the differences between the current buffer's local file and repository version.
The cvs-log command opens a *cvs-log* window displaying the CVS log of the current buffer's file.
The cvs-remove command removes the current buffer's file from the repository - PLEASE NOTE THIS CAN LEAD TO LOST DATA!!! This command only performs the local removal; as it deletes the buffer and file the cvs-commit command cannot be used to commit the removal to the CVS repository. Instead the main cvs file-browser menu or cvs(1) itself must be used.
The cvs-resolve-conflicts command may be used to resolve any conflicts created by CVS when the current buffer's file is updated. The command opens a gdiff window displaying the areas of conflict, the user may then select the correct version in each case and save the resultant new version over the local file.
The cvs-state command opens a *cvs-state* window listing the state of any file in the current directory which is not up-to-date. Note that unlike most cvs sub commands this command executes over all files in the current buffer's file directory.
The cvs-status command opens a *cvs-state* window and shows the state of the current buffer in the window including the modification state, repository etc.
The cvs-tag command opens a dialog box and allows the user to add, remove or delete a CVS tag.
The cvs-update command updates all files in the current directory, the output being reported to a new *cvs-update* window. Note that unlike most cvs sub commands this command executes over all files in the current buffer's file directory.
cvs-setup provides a dialog interface to configure the MicroEmacs CVS interface if required. On a typical system installation then it is sufficient to have $CVSROOT defined in the environment and the CVS tools will operate from this environment variable without any further configuration of MicroEmacs. If MicroEmacs CVS configuration is provided then this will over-ride the environment variable.
cvs-setup may also be accessed from user-setup(3) from the Miscellaneous configuration. The the dialog provides the following configuration controls:
CVS Command Setup
Quieter CVS output
The CVS File Browser is an extension to the file-browser(3) and shows the state of CVS files in a directory listing.
Quick browser mode
Recurse into sub-directories
Check-out missing directories
Prune empty directories
cvs and sub-commands are macros defined in file cvs.emf.
When filtering is enabled in the file browser the filter used by the CVS interface depends on the file browser mode, if Quick browser mode is enabled the same filter is used, but when disabled all files ignored by cvs(1) are also removed by the filter. Use buffer-setup(3) in the buffer to enable/disable the filter.
