cvs diff requires you to be in a work area.
cvs rdiff allows you to do a diff without having a work area.
Note that the rdiff uses the "-c" format showing a context diff of three
lines before and after the changes.
Note that the status command does not have a corresponding rstatus command
because the status is comparing a work area to the repository.  So your program should not include a status command.
