A.14.1 rdiff options
These standard options are supported by
(see section A.5 Common command options, for a complete description of
- Use the most recent revision no later than date.
- If no matching revision is found, retrieve the most
recent revision (instead of ignoring the file).
- Local; don't descend subdirectories.
- Examine directories recursively. This option is on by default.
- Use revision tag.
In addition to the above, these options are available:
- Use the context diff format. This is the default format.
- Create a summary change report instead of a patch. The
summary includes information about files that were
changed or added between the releases. It is sent to
the standard output device. This is useful for finding
out, for example, which files have changed between two
dates or revisions.
- A diff of the top two revisions is sent to the standard
output device. This is most useful for seeing what the
last change to a file was.
- Use the unidiff format for the context diffs.
Remember that old versions
patch program can't handle the unidiff
format, so if you plan to post this patch to the net
you should probably not use `-u'.
- Expand keywords according to the rules current in
RCS version vn (the expansion format changed with
RCS version 5). Note that this option is no
longer accepted. CVS will always expand keywords the
way that RCS version 5 does.
