Sorry if this has been asked before, but I wasn't able to find an answer
to this.

I was using TortoiseCVS under windows, which add small tags to the icons
in the file manager so that it's easy to know if a file is present or
not in the CVS module.
Now I'm using cvs command line under Linux, and it's much more difficult
to know if a file is in the current CVS module. I often have to create
new files, sometimes I want them to be in the module, sometimes not, so
I sometimes forget to do a 'cvs add ...'. I would like to be able to
recursively scan files in the current directory and display which files
are not in the CVS module, this way I would be able to quickly find
which files I forgot to add. I could write a script to do that, however
I am unable to find a CVS command that would tell me if the file is
present in the module (and without asking me for a password, as this
command could use the Entries files). Is it possible to do this?

Thanks for any help...
