       cvsmgdiff - uses mgdiff to display differences between any two cvs


       cvsmgdiff [-v-h-g gui-r rev1 [-r rev2]] file ...


       This manual page documents briefly  the cvsmgdiff program.  This manual
       page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution (but may be used
       by others), because the  original program does not have a manual page.

       This script lets you recursively diff the CVS directories you have
       checked out.  To use, just pass in an optional revision levels and an
       optional file directory name.  This script then will show you the
       differences you’re interested in.


       -v  Print version information successfully

       -h  Print help information

       -g gui
           Use the program gui as the user interface (default:

       -r revision
           Specify the CVS revision to view.  If just one -r option is given,
           view differences between that revision and the current file in the
           CVS working directory.  If two -r options are given, compare those
           two revisions with each other.
