The suite of small programs called
cvsutils generally (although
not always) performs offline operations in the CVS working copy.
Offline operations are those that can be done without contacting the
repository, while still leaving the working copy in a consistent state
for the next time the repository is contacted. Offline behavior can be
extremely handy when your network connection to the repository is slow
The cvsutils programs are listed below in approximate order of usefulness (according to my opinion), with the more useful ones coming first. Coincidentally, this also arranges them by safety. Safety is an issue because some of these utilities can, in their normal course of operation, cause you to lose local modifications or files from your working copy. Therefore, read the descriptions carefully before using these utilities.
