my CVS default options

I have all my code now in svn or git, so, in order to remember my cvs defaults for projects that still use cvs (eg. EnsEMBL), these are my defaults:

cvs -z3
diff -Nu
update -Pd
checkout -P

This example says:

  • always use compression level 3 when talking to a remote server. This is a life-saver when working over a slow connection.
  • always use the -N (show added or removed files) and -u (unified diff format) options to diff(1).
  • always use the -P (prune empty directories) and -d (check out new directories) options when updating.
  • always use the -P (prune empty directories) option when checking out.
