A dirty solution is to do a local checkout followed by a dummy update:

cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/cvsroot/module co -l module

cd module

cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/cvsroot/module -qn up –d

This will list the directories and won’t checkout.


The output can be formatted to a simple list:

cvs -qn up -d 2>&1 | cut -f 5 -d' '

This list may be used to checkout the first level directories (e.g. using xargs)


The process may be repeated (using a script) to checkout or view nth-level directories.
