My advice is to look at examples of the find and xargs commands.

Get a clean copy of the directory, no ~ files etc.
cd mydir
find . -not -path "*CVS*" | xargs cvs delete -f
cvs commit

And don't run any commands without looking up what they do first.

Subject: delete 400+ files from cvs

Dear friends:

I need to remove 400+ Fortran files from a CVS directory. Basically, I
need to remove the whole directory. Is there any way to remove the
whole directory? Do I need to remove the file one by one? There 400+ of
them! Removing them one by one is lot of works. The OS is Linux.

Your hint is highly appreciated!!!
