Description

$ man cvsup
No manual entry for cvsup
$ _

I consider a missing manpage being a bug. YMMV!

Yeah.

Matt, could you add a manual page to the cvsup package on pkgbox?

While we talking manual pages:

You're using the shell builtin. Try /usr/bin/time. :)

Most shells provide a time builtin. Try a \ in front of your command:
$ \time -h cvs up -Pd

Thanks,
Perhaps a note of this could be added the time manual page for people
like me that didnt know that ;)

Hmm, the time(1) manpage does have a reference to builtin(1) (same goes
for echo(1) manpage etc.).

So _theoretically_ you could have found it. :)

It's even clearer than that:

Some shells may provide a builtin time command which is similar or iden-
tical to this utility. Consult the builtin(1) manual page.

Petr, What would you suggest to make it clearer?

Perhaps I should read more carefuly :)

I could add a manual page that says "cvsup - the utility everyone
loves to hate, but still buy in droves at the half-off sale!". Or
I could just throw up my hands and go back to working on syslink.
