Subject Parsing cvs -nq update output
Date Fri, 29 Aug 2003 09:18:11 GMT

I need to create an auto-commit script.
The idea is to automatically:
. Add new files
. Remove old files
. Commit

Basically the process would be the following:
. Run "cvs -nq update" which would give an output like:
. Run "cvs add" for each file which is preceded by a '?'. We might also want
to check for the binary property of the file (cvs add -kb in this case), but
that might come later...
. Run "cvs remove" for each file which is preceded by a 'U'
. Run cvs commit

I don't really see how to parse the "cvs -nq update" output in order to get
the 'to remove' and 'to add' file lists. I thought about FilterChains,
without really finding what I need. Any idea?

Thank you,
