A.23 verify-Verify OpenPGP revision signatures

The verify command may be used to verify the OpenPGP signatures for specific revisions of a file. Note that when the verify mode is set to `warn' or `fatal', via the environment (see section All environment variables which affect CVS), the command line (see section Global options), or as a CVSROOT method option (see section The connection method), CVS verifies all revisions before operating on them.

These standard options are available with verify (see section Common command options, for a complete description of them):


Local; run only in current working directory. See section Recursive behavior.


Pipe signatures to the standard output, instead of verifying.


Sign all files recursively (default). See section Recursive behavior.

-r tag[:date]

Verify the revisions specified by tag or, when date is specified and tag is a branch tag, the version from the branch tag as it existed on date. See also, Common command options.
