   1: Just thought i would share this... i created it after
   2: finding not finding anything with this functionality
   3: (a while ago).  It was made for my personal needs 
   4: initially, and was doctored up a few weeks later to
   5: be somewhat customizable.  Its about a year old.
   6: 
   7: I have a cronjob that runs it every day:
   8: 0 1 * * * /home/conteb/cvs/snapshot.pl phynd /var/www/snapshots /var/cvs >> /var/www/snapshots/snapshots.log 2>&1
   9: 
  10: Sample can be found at http://www.phynd.net/snapshots/
  11: 
  12: #!/usr/bin/perl
  13: #
  14: # Create nightly cvs snapshots of project in a 
  15: # repository, only saving the snapshot if the module 
  16: # has changed.
  17: # 
  18: # TODO: Error checking is by no means complete.
  19: #
  20: use Date::Manip;
  21: 
  22: use strict;
  23: use warnings;
  24: 
  25: sub printHelp; # print basic help screen
  26: 
  27: my $tempdir = '/tmp/';
  28: my $maxdayspast = 90; # will only check 90 days in the past before recording.
  29: 
  30: # Can take 1 - 3 args - project name and dir to put resulting snapshot
  31: my $project = shift(@ARGV) or printHelp;
  32: my $dest = shift(@ARGV) or printHelp;
  33: my $server = shift(@ARGV) or printHelp;
  34: 
  35:

  37: die "Error: No access to /tmp or /tmp not a dir\n"
  38:     unless (-w $tempdir && -d $tempdir);
  39: die "Error: No access to $dest, $dest not a dir, or $dest doen't exist\n"
  40:     unless (-d $dest && -w $dest);
  41: 
  42: 
  43: # First checkout the needed cvs directory
  44: chdir $tempdir;

  64: 
  65: # for some reason, compressed tarballs of identical trees checked out
  66: # at different times create slightly different sized tarballs (on my 
  67: # machine, anyway, using reiserfs).  I'm not about to step out of my 
  68: # league and try to explain it - but it means we have to untar the package
  69: # and run a diff on the two trees to see if there is a difference.
  70: if ($prev == $maxdayspast) {
  71:     print "Did not find any snapshots within $maxdayspast days, recording new..."; }
