Hi list, (Please Cc: my in your replies.)
I am looking for a way to achieve what I would intuitively write: cvs diff -r RELENG_6 -D <date1> -D <date2> Some people would point me to the info-cvs mailing-list for this question doesn't seem to be related to FreeBSD. Nonetheless FreeBSD 6 has cvs 1.11.17-FreeBSD and I am pretty sure that cvs guys would to me to use a newer version of cvs: this is indeed a FAQ . Starting at version 1.12.12, cvs can handle the following syntax: cvs diff -r <tag>:<date> -r <tag>:<date>  http://ximbiot.com/cvs/wiki/index.php?title=CVS_FAQ#How_do_I_get_a_date_based_diff_on_a_branch.3F The proposed workaround works but it implies to have write access to the repository. Moreover tagging the whole src/ tree is a bit overkill for such a task. I've read somewhere it is possible to use "cvs diff -j <date>:<tag>", but I wasn't able to confirm this. Any clue or pointers are welcome. Thank you. Best regards, PS: In the meantime, one can use "cvs update -r <branch> -D <date>" but "cvs status" reveals only a sticky tag. The sticky date is lost, probably because the CVS/Entries file can handle either flag "T<tag>" or "D<date>" and not both together. Does any one know how to workaround this, or if it has been addressed in later version of cvs ? -- Jeremie Le Hen < jeremie at le-hen dot org >< ttz at chchile dot org > _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
