A.9.1 commit options
These standard options are supported by
(see section A.5 Common command options, for a complete description of
- Local; run only in current working directory.
- Commit directories recursively. This is on by default.
- 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:
- 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 section 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
$ cvs commit -f file $ cvs commit -r 1.8 fileThe ‘-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’.
- Use message as the log message, instead of invoking an editor.
