NAME

       fixcvsdiff - fix problematic diff files

SYNOPSIS

       fixcvsdiff [-p] [-b] [file...]

DESCRIPTION

       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.

OPTIONS

       -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.

SEE ALSO

       diff(1), patch(1), cvs(1)
