Hi Monks!

I am trying to develop specific process of working with CVS via Perl.
Clearly, ther should not be any reason why to write it all from start, that what I thought, but starting to look for a proper resource/module gave me other results.

I think I am wrong, and there is probebly something I missed.

Here is what I found until now:
- cvsweb/cvsweb-FreeBSD/cvsweb+cvsedit - all written in Perl, but all CGI-related and not module.
Not good for me.

- VCS modules - look promising, but seems to work on a copy of the repository (I mean - you have to checkout before you start...). VCSWEB did not work properly for me anyway.
Not good for me.

- Apache::CVS - module that do similar things to cvsweb, but a module. Since it is an Apache module, I think it is not good for me.

- cvs2html - Another Perl script. Not a module.

- mod_cvs - I could not even reach its web site. What exactly is it ?

Well, Monks, I would love to get some ideas here before I start to write my own module...

And another thing - if anyone can answer me the following questions I would appriciate it:
1. Can I work with Apache::CVS modules not via Apache/HTML ? It looks like it, but I am not sure.

2. Why the hell VCS is not designed to work on the repository ?

3. Does anybody answer the task of taking the splendid cvsweb and "modulate" it ?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
