Cvs notes

From raju

Keyword substitution

tag | automatic headers, keyword expansion

For Perl files, I use

#! /usr/bin/env perl
#=============================
#   Last edited by:  $Author$
#               on:  $Date$
#         Revision:  $Revision$
#         Filename:  $RCSfile$

The keywords are expanded after committing the file.

print status in a compact way

% cat ~/bin/cvsqn
cvs -qn update

% chmod +x ~/bin/cvsqn
% cvsqn
M foo.pl

Mnemonic: "cvs queen"

tags | cvs equivalent of "svn status"
