       fixcvsdiff - fix problematic diff files


       fixcvsdiff [-p] [-b] [file...]


       fixcvsdiff modifies diff files created from the cvs diff command, where
       files have been added or removed. CVS tends to create diff files that
       patch(1) mis-interprets. The diff file must retain the lines beginning
       with "Index:" in order for the correction to work.


           Keep a .bak backup file.

           Print out the cvs add and cvs remove commands that must be made
           after applying the diff, but before running cvs commit.


       diff(1), patch(1), cvs(1)
