CVS tools

I still like using CVS for version control, mainly because of the simple repository format, which lets me fix any problems or software confusion my manipulating (text) files. And often you can get a confused repository working again, by simply deleting a ,v or restoring it from a backup. You might loose some history on that file, but at least you have a working repository again. Below you'll find some tools I use along CVS to ease my daily work.

vc is a simple shell script for unified command line handling for CVS, subversion, git. It tries to provide the same semantics for some often used commands to these version control software.

cvsadd is a shell script to add files and directories recursively to a checked-out CVS directory. This script complements CVS's import command, since add doesn't not work recursively and import can only be used to create repositories.

CVS MD5 Checksum is a hook program for a CVS repository to check the repository files for corruptions with MD5 checksums. To automatically set files as binary detected by their file extension I use this cvswrappers configuration.
