Updating the directory
Run a `cvs update' command. You will be asked for the directory in
which the `cvs update' will be run. The output will be parsed by
pcl-cvs, and the result printed in the `*cvs*' buffer (see *note
Buffer contents::. for a description of the contents).
By default, `cvs-update' will descend recursively into
subdirectories. You can avoid that behavior by giving a prefix
argument to it (e.g., by typing `C-u M-x cvs-update RET').
All other commands in pcl-cvs requires that you have a `*cvs*'
buffer. This is the command that you use to get one.
CVS uses lock files in the repository to ensure the integrity of
the data files in the repository. They might be left behind i.e.
if a workstation crashes in the middle of a CVS operation. CVS
outputs a message when it is waiting for a lock file to go away.
Pcl-cvs will show the same message in the *cvs* buffer, together
with instructions for deleting the lock files. You should
normally not have to delete them manually -- just wait a little
while and the problem should fix itself. But if the lock files
doesn't disappear you can delete them with `M-x cvs-delete-lock
This will run `cvs update' again. It will always use the same
buffer that was used with the previous `cvs update'. Give a prefix
argument to avoid descending into subdirectories. This runs the
