C.1.2 Regular modules

mname [ options ] dir [ files… ]

In the simplest case, this form of module definition reduces to ‘mname dir’. This defines all the files in directory dir as module mname. dir is a relative path (from $CVSROOT) to a directory of source in the source repository. In this case, on checkout, a single directory called mname is created as a working directory; no intermediate directory levels are used by default, even if dir was a path involving several directory levels.

For example, if a module is defined by:

 
regmodule first-dir

then regmodule will contain the files from first-dir:

 
$ cvs co regmodule
cvs checkout: Updating regmodule
U regmodule/file1
U regmodule/file2
cvs checkout: Updating regmodule/sdir
U regmodule/sdir/sfile
$

By explicitly specifying files in the module definition after dir, you can select particular files from directory dir. Here is an example:

 
regfiles first-dir/sdir sfile

With this definition, getting the regfiles module will create a single working directory ‘regfiles’ containing the file listed, which comes from a directory deeper in the CVS source repository:

 
$ cvs co regfiles
U regfiles/sfile
$
