CVS--Concurrent Versions System v1.11.1.1

[ < ] [ > ]   [ << ] [ Up ] [ >> ]         [Top] [Contents] [Index] [ ? ]

A.8.1 commit options

These standard options are supported by commit (see section A.5 Common command options, for a complete description of them):

Local; run only in current working directory.

Do not run any module program.

Commit directories recursively. This is on by default.

-r revision
Commit to revision. revision must be either a branch, or a revision on the main trunk that is higher than any existing revision number (see section 4.3 Assigning revisions). You cannot commit to a specific revision on a branch.

commit also supports these options:

-F file
Read the log message from file, instead of invoking an editor.

Note that this is not the standard behavior of the `-f' option as defined in A.5 Common command options.

Force CVS to commit a new revision even if you haven't made any changes to the file. If the current revision of file is 1.7, then the following two commands are equivalent:

$ cvs commit -f file
$ cvs commit -r 1.8 file

The `-f' option disables recursion (i.e., it implies `-l'). To force CVS to commit a new revision for all files in all subdirectories, you must use `-f -R'.

-m message
Use message as the log message, instead of invoking an editor.
