CVS---Concurrent Versions System. Node: Alias modules
C.1.1: Alias modules
Alias modules are the simplest kind of module:
mname -a aliases...
This represents the simplest way of defining a module
mname. The `
-a' flags the definition as a
simple alias: CVS will treat any use of mname (as
a command argument) as if the list of names
aliases had been specified instead.
aliases may contain either other module names or
paths. When you use paths in aliases,
creates all intermediate directories in the working
directory, just as if the path had been specified
explicitly in the CVS arguments.
For example, if the modules file contains:
amodule -a first-dir
then the following two commands are equivalent:
$ cvs co amodule
$ cvs co first-dir
and they each would provide output such as:
cvs checkout: Updating first-dir
cvs checkout: Updating first-dir/sdir
