SYNOPSIS

cvscan [-hqv] [-r release] -c file [name] cvscan [-Fhqv] [-L-| -l ] [-r release] -f file directory

DESCRIPTION

cvscan is a small utility mainly for cvsyncd. During a synchronization, cvsyncd scans and compares a directory structure of each collection on the client with one on the server. When a scanfile is used on the server, cvsyncd does not scan a directory structure and use the information from the scanfile instead. This allows to reduce disk i/o load radically.

However, if the server is the origin or the upstream server does not use cvsync, the scanfile has to be generated on the server. cvscan is the utility for that purpose.

Since cvsync automatically generates scanfiles for each collection with the keyword scanfile’, cvscan is usually not needed on the client.

The following options are available:
-F Doesn’t follow a symbolic link. By default, cvscan follows a symbolic link and handle it as is.
-L Forces cvscan to set errormode’ to fixup’. Refer the keyword errormode’ in cvsync or cvsyncd.
-c file
  Specifies the configuration file for cvsyncd.
-f file
  Specifies the output file. The file must be writable.
-h Print the usage of cvscan to standard error.
-l Forces cvscan to set errormode’ to ignore’. Refer the keyword errormode’ in cvsync or cvsyncd.
-q Be silent mode.
-r release
  Specifies the release type. Refer the keyword release’ in cvsync or cvsyncd.
-v Be verbose mode.

EXIT STATUS

The cvscan utility exits EXIT_SUCCESS on success, and EXIT_FAILURE if an error occurs.
