Re: Erase all cvs info from directory tree

If you do an export instead of a checkout, then the CVS client will not pull the 'CVS' directories down in the first place.

I need sometimes to get rid of all the "CVS"-directories (including the

hand but maybe someone has a (recursive?) bash or perl script for this?
I would really appreciate this, because sometimes it is also nice to
remove all the CVS information from a tree, when something is used
outside CVS.

(My knowledge of bash or perl is too little to create such a script,
although I could understand and use it, when I see it)

Additionaly / alternatively: is there a way to import a project that
already has CVS information? I could imagine that this is possible
using the -W or -I options. But on the other hand, aren't the CVS infos
read *before* -W and -I are applied?

And how would I write this? My guessing would be something like:

cvs import -m "new start" -W */CVS/*  project1 user1 newstart

Can anyone help? I imagine that also other people have this issue from
time to time. Thank You - Robert
