NAME

     cvs-switchroot — change repository or tag in a cvs working copy

SYNOPSIS

     cvs-switchroot [-T] newroot [file ...]

     cvs-switchroot [-T] - srcpath [file ...]

DESCRIPTION

     The cvs-switchroot utility manipulates a CVS working copy directly, modifying the
     information stored in the administrative subdirectory and saving space by hardlinking if
     possible.

     If the -T option is given, the sticky tag is operated on, otherwise, the repository path
     (CVSROOT).

     The information (Tag or Root) is set to the same as in srcpath if the first non-option
     argument newroot is a sole dash (‘-’), the literal value newroot otherwise.

EXAMPLES

     Change all Root information in the current sandbox to /cvs:

          $ cvs-switchroot /cvs .

     Set all roots in the current working directory and all its subdirectories to the Root of the
     parent directory:

          $ cvs-switchroot - .. .

     Hardlink the Tag information in the current working directory, for example /usr/src, and
     /usr/ports with each other:

          $ cvs-switchroot -T - . . /usr/ports
