All (or most) CVS operations are recursive by default. diff -u gives a unified diff, which is the preferred diff type for the GIMP in general, being quite readable. So cvs diff -u help > help.patch should do the trick. To have this option on all the time, add the line "diff -u" to the file ~/.cvsrc (create the file if there isn't already one). You should probably consider adding the lines "update -dP" and "cvs -z3 -e/usr/bin/emacs" too. That's the only one of your questions I have an answer for, though :) Cheers, Dave. -- David Neary, Lyon, France E-Mail: [EMAIL PROTECTED]
