'cvsdelta' works with a CVS project, producing a list of the local files that have been changed. It lists the number of lines of code that have been added, removed, and deleted. It can also execute the "add" and "remove" commands for the appropriate files. It detects files that have been added and removed, and of existing files it counts the number of lines that have been added, deleted, and changed. It filters project changes by using .cvsignore files, both system-wide and locally. Via the --execute option, cvsdelta can also perform the related operations with CVS, that is, it can add and remove the appropriate files. Again, .cvsignore files are honored. Thus, "cvsdelta --execute" will add all new files to the CVS project.
