ActiveScript support

On Windows platforms (Windows 2000 and later), cvsnt can use the builtin active scripting support to produce simple scripts.

To enable this functionality, enable the 'ActiveScript Plugin' using the CVSNT Server Control Panel, and cvs add a file to the checked out CVSROOT as follows:

The scripting engine you intend to use must be installed on the server - only the VBScript engine is installed by default.

Available functions are as follows:

init(command, current_date, hostname, username, virtual_repository, physical_repository, session_id, editor, user_variable_array, client_version, character_set)
taginfo(message,directory, file_array, action, tag)
verifymsg(directory, filename)
loginfo(message, status, directory, change_array)
history(history_type, workdir, revs, name, bugid, message, dummy)
notify(message, bugid, directory, notify_user, tag, notify_type, file)
precommit(name_list, message, directory)
parse_keyword(keyword, directory, file, branch, author, printable_date, rcs_date, locker, state, version, name, bugid, commitid, global_properties, local_properties)
prercsdiff(file, directory, oldfile, newfile, diff_type, options, oldversion, newversion)
rcsdiff(file, directory, oldfile, newfile, diff, diff_type, options, oldversion, newversion, added, removed)

Functions should return 0 if successful. Arguments are strings, except where the name ends in _list which are arrays of strings, or _array, which are associative arrays (name=value).

The exceptions to this is loginfo, which is passed an array of structures containing filename, rev_old and rev_new. Also the get_template and parse_keyword functions, which are expected to return a string or null.

The script has access to a server object, called Server, which contains the following functions:


An example of all these functions is available in the cvsnt source tree, called script.vbs in the contrib_nt directory.
