C.1.1 Alias modules

Alias modules are the simplest kind of module:

mname -a aliases

This represents the simplest way of defining a module mname. The `-a' flags the definition as a simple alias: CVS will treat any use of mname (as a command argument) as if the list of names aliases had been specified instead. aliases may contain either other module names or paths. When you use paths in aliases, checkout creates all intermediate directories in the working directory, just as if the path had been specified explicitly in the CVS arguments.

For example, if the modules file contains:

amodule -a first-dir

then the following two commands are equivalent:

$ cvs co amodule
$ cvs co first-dir

and they each would provide output such as:

cvs checkout: Updating first-dir
U first-dir/file1
U first-dir/file2
cvs checkout: Updating first-dir/sdir
U first-dir/sdir/sfile
