FIXCVSDIFF(1)                                                    FIXCVSDIFF(1)



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)
