A.15.2 rdiff examples

Suppose you receive mail from [email protected] asking for an update from release 1.2 to 1.4 of the tc compiler. You have no such patches on hand, but with CVS that can easily be fixed with a command such as this:

$ cvs rdiff -c -r FOO1_2 -r FOO1_4 tc | \
$$ Mail -s 'The patches you asked for' [email protected]

Suppose you have made release 1.3, and forked a branch called `R_1_3fix' for bug fixes. `R_1_3_1' corresponds to release 1.3.1, which was made some time ago. Now, you want to see how much development has been done on the branch. This command can be used:

$ cvs patch -s -r R_1_3_1 -r R_1_3fix module-name
cvs rdiff: Diffing module-name
File ChangeLog,v changed from revision to
File foo.c,v changed from revision to
File bar.h,v changed from revision to 1.2
