C.6 Taginfo

The taginfo file defines programs to execute when someone executes a tag or rtag command. The taginfo file has the standard form for trigger scripts (see Trigger Scripts), where each line is a regular expression followed by a command to execute (see syntax). The arguments passed to the command are, in order, the tagname, operation (add for tag, mov for tag -F, and del for tag -d), repository, and any remaining are pairs of filename revision. A non-zero exit of the filter program will cause the tag to be aborted.

Here is an example of using the taginfo file to log tag and rtag commands. In the taginfo file put:

ALL /usr/local/cvsroot/CVSROOT/loggit

Where /usr/local/cvsroot/CVSROOT/loggit contains the following script:

echo "$@" >>/home/kingdon/cvsroot/CVSROOT/taglog
