5.7 Editing files

There are currently three commands that can be used to find a file (that is, load it into a buffer and start editing it there). These commands work on the line that the cursor is situated at. They always ignore any marked files.

f
Find the file that the cursor points to (cvs-mode-find-file). If the cursor points to a directory, run dired on that directory; see Dired.
o
Like f, but use another window (cvs-mode-find-file-other-window).
A
Invoke ‘add-change-log-entry-other-window’ to edit a ChangeLog file. The ChangeLog file will be found in the directory of the file the cursor points to, or in a parent of that directory (cvs-mode-add-change-log-entry-other-window).
