1. what is the difference between cvs del & cvs rm ?
there is no difference:
cvs --help-synonyms gives the following list (1.10.8 - i guess the list still the same for 1.11)

CVS command synonyms are:
        add          ad new
        admin        adm rcs
        annotate     ann
        checkout     co get
        commit       ci com
        diff         di dif
        export       exp ex
        history      hi his
        import       im imp
        log          lo rlog
        login        logon lgn
        rdiff        patch pa
        release      re rel
        remove       rm delete
        status       st stat
        rtag         rt rfreeze
        tag          ta freeze
        update       up upd

2. If i removed the files from local dir and then cvs del
then it will note the deleted files. After some time
If i want to add a file with the filename which i have deleted
then cvs is not accepting, because cvs have some info in history
After the delete, you are doing the commit, right?

How can i add 'an already deleted file from cvs' to the repository ?
You just create a file with the same name. Since CVS is keeping a copy and history for the files removed in the Attic, it will figure out this was a file that was removed before. It will bring it back to life and note that it was resurrected :)

And probably (correct me if I am wrong) the file has to be at the same directory it was before.

Is there a way to dynamically commit all new and
deleted files? I can't find a way to do this. I have
to do an add or remove for each file. Thanks for any
