Updating CVS/Entries

Howdy --
I wrote a simple program which finds
parses local CVS/Entries files and checks
the timestamp of local files to determine if
a file is locally modified.
What I notice is that over time I may touch a file
here and there and eventually I may have dozens
of locally modified files which, when an actual
cvs status is done, come back as up-to-date.
Ok? Great.
We all know that CVS does a similar timestamp
check before going over the my network, to the repository,
to diff the files. Which, of course, takes time.
Is there a way to update the CVS/Entries file timestamps
to avoid having cvs go to the repository to check for diffs?
cvs update doesn't do it (I thought it would). I guess I
could add the feature to my simple little program, but
I don't want to reinvent the wheel if'n I don't hafta.
