fixcvsdiff - fix problematic diff files
fixcvsdiff [-p] [-b] [file...]
fixcvsdiff modifies diff files created from the cvs diff command, where files have been added or removed. CVS tends to create diff files that patch(1) mis-interprets. The diff file must retain the lines beginning with “Index:” in order for the correction to work.
-b Keep a .bak backup file. -p Print out the cvs add and cvs remove commands that must be made after applying the diff, but before running cvs commit.
