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)
