<cvs-update>

[This is preliminary documentation and subject to change.]

Updates a CVS module in a local working directory.

Parameters

Attribute Type Description Required
builddirs bool If true. new directories will be created on the local sandbox. The default is true. False
date datetime Specify the revision date to update to. The version of the file that existed at the date specified is retrieved. False
overwritelocal bool If true the local copy of the file will be overwritten with the copy from the remote repository. The default is false. False
pruneempty bool If true empty directories copied down from the remote repository will be removed from the local sandbox. The default is true. False
recursive bool Specifies if the command should be executed recursively. The default is true. False
revision string Specify the revision to update the file to. This corresponds to the "sticky-tag" of the file. False
sticky-tag string Sticky tag or revision to update the local file to. False
commandline string Command-line arguments for the program. The command line arguments are used to specify any cvs command options that are not available as attributes. These are appended after the command itself and are additive to whatever attributes are currently specified. False
compressionlevel int Compression level to use for all net traffic. This should be a value from 1-9.



NOTE: This is not available on sharpcvslib.
False
cvsfullpath file The full path to the cvs binary used. The cvs tasks will attempt to "guess" the location of your cvs binary based on your path. If the task is unable to resolve the location, or resolves it incorrectly this can be used to manually specify the path. False
cvsroot string

The cvs root variable has the following components:

[protocol]:[username]@[servername]:[server path]
  • protocol: ext, pserver, ssh (sharpcvslib); if you are not using sharpcvslib consult your cvs documentation.
  • username: [username]
  • servername: cvs.sourceforge.net
  • server path: /cvsroot/nant

False
cvsrsh file The executable to use for ssh communication. False
destination directory Destination directory for the local sandbox. If destination is not specified then the current directory is used. False
failonerror bool Determines if task failure stops the build, or is just reported. The default is true. False
if bool If true then the task will be executed; otherwise, skipped. The default is true. False
module string The module to perform an operation on. False
passfile file The full path to the cached password file. If not specified then the environment variables are used to try and locate the file. False
password string Deprecated. The password for logging in to the repository. False
quiet bool Indicates if the output from the cvs command should be supressed. The default is false. False
readonly bool true if the sandbox files should be checked out in read only mode. The default is false. False
readwrite bool true if the sandbox files should be checked out in read/write mode. The default is true. False
reallyquiet bool Indicates if the output from the cvs command should be stopped. The default is false. False
timeout int The maximum amount of time the application is allowed to execute, expressed in milliseconds. Defaults to no time-out. False
unless bool Opposite of if. If false then the task will be executed; otherwise, skipped. The default is false. False
usesharpcvslib bool

true if the SharpCvsLib binaries that come bundled with NAnt should be used to perform the cvs commands, false otherwise.

You may also specify an override value for all cvs tasks instead of specifying a value for each. To do this set the property sourcecontrol.usesharpcvslib to false.

If you choose not to use SharpCvsLib to checkout from cvs you will need to include a cvs.exe binary in your path.
False
verbose bool Determines whether the task should report detailed build log messages. The default is false. False

Framework-configurable parameters

Attribute Type Description Required
managed ManagedExecution Specifies whether the external program should be treated as a managed application, possibly forcing it to be executed under the currently targeted version of the CLR. False
useruntimeengine bool Deprecated. Specifies whether the external program is a managed application which should be executed using a runtime engine, if configured. The default is false. False

Nested Elements:

<fileset>

Used to specify the version control system (VCS) files that are going to be acted on.

</fileset>

<arg>

The command-line arguments for the external program.

Represents a command-line argument.

When passed to an external application, the argument will be quoted when appropriate. This does not apply to the line parameter, which is always passed as is.

Parameters

AttributeTypeDescriptionRequired
dirdirectory The value for a directory-based command-line argument; will be replaced with the absolute path of the directory. False
filefile The name of a file as a single command-line argument; will be replaced with the absolute filename of the file. False
ifbool Indicates if the argument should be passed to the external program. If true then the argument will be passed; otherwise, skipped. The default is true. False
linestring List of command-line arguments; will be passed to the executable as is. False
path<path> The value for a PATH-like command-line argument; you can use : or ; as path separators and NAnt will convert it to the platform's local conventions, while resolving references to environment variables. False
unlessbool Indicates if the argument should not be passed to the external program. If false then the argument will be passed; otherwise, skipped. The default is false. False
valuestring A single command-line argument; can contain space characters. False

Nested Elements:

<path>

Sets a single command-line argument and treats it like a PATH - ensures the right separator for the local platform is used.

</path>
