Almost all of the subcommands of CVS work recursively when you specify a directory as an argument. For instance, consider this directory structure:
If ‘tc’ is the current working directory, the following is true:
cvs update testing/testpgm.t testing/test2.t
If no arguments are given to
update it will
update all files in the current working directory and
all its subdirectories. In other words, ‘.’ is a
default argument to
update. This is also true
for most of the CVS subcommands, not only the
The recursive behavior of the CVS subcommands can be turned off with the ‘-l’ option. Conversely, the ‘-R’ option can be used to force recursion if ‘-l’ is specified in ‘~/.cvsrc’ (see section Default options and the ~/.cvsrc file).
$ cvs update -l # Don't update files in subdirectories
