This appendix describes the overall structure of cvsnt commands, and describes some commands in detail
The overall format of all cvsnt commands is:
cvs [ cvs_options ] cvs_command [ command_options ] [ command_args ]
The name of the cvsnt program.
Some options that affect all sub-commands of cvsnt. These are described below.
One of several different sub-commands. Some of the commands have aliases that can be used instead; those aliases are noted in the reference manual for that command. There are only two situations where you may omit cvs_command: cvs -H elicits a list of available commands, and cvs -v displays version information on cvsnt itself.
Options that are specific for the command.
Arguments to the commands.
There is unfortunately some confusion between cvs_options and command_options. -l, when given as a cvs_option, only affects some of the commands. When it is given as a command_option is has a different meaning, and is accepted by more commands. In other words, do not take the above categorization too seriously. Look at the documentation instead.
