Updated 2011-03-16 18:13:09 by AK

With the transition of the Tcl/Tk Source Repositories from CVS over to Fossil it becomes necessary to learn a new set of commands. This page was made to help with that, by showing equivalent CVS and Fossil commands.

Action CVSFossil
Add a file touch FOO
cvs add FOO
touch FOO
fossil add FOO
Remove a file rm FOO
cvs remove FOO
rm FOO
fossil rm FOO
Rename a file mv FOO BAR
cvs remove FOO
cvs add BAR
fossil mv FOO BAR
Show files made and not added fossil extra

General Note: Fossil has a builtin help system. Invoke it via

fossil help

For help on specific commands use

fossil help <commandname>
