Specifies certain filtering behaviors based on file name. Each line has a file-globbing pattern (that is, a file name or file wildcards), followed by an option indicating the filter type and an argument for the option.


Here is an example cvswrappers file:

     *.blob    -m COPY
     *.blink   -k o

This cvswrappers file says to not attempt merges on files ending in .blob and suppress keyword substitution for files ending in .blink. (See also the file .cvswrappers in the Run Control Files section in this chapter.)
