On Windows platforms (Windows 2000 and later), cvsnt can use the builtin active scripting support to produce simple scripts.
To enable this functionality, enable the 'ActiveScript Plugin' using the CVSNT Server Control Panel, and cvs add a file to the checked out CVSROOT as follows:
script.vbs for VBScript support
script.pl for PerlScript support
script.rb for RubyScript support
The scripting engine you intend to use must be installed on the server - only the VBScript engine is installed by default.
Available functions are as follows:
init(command, current_date, hostname, username, virtual_repository, physical_repository, session_id, editor, user_variable_array, client_version, character_set) close taginfo(message,directory, file_array, action, tag) verifymsg(directory, filename) loginfo(message, status, directory, change_array) history(history_type, workdir, revs, name, bugid, message, dummy) notify(message, bugid, directory, notify_user, tag, notify_type, file) precommit(name_list, message, directory) postcommit(directory) precommand(argument_list) postcommand(directory) premodule(module) postmodule(module) get_template(directory) parse_keyword(keyword, directory, file, branch, author, printable_date, rcs_date, locker, state, version, name, bugid, commitid, global_properties, local_properties) prercsdiff(file, directory, oldfile, newfile, diff_type, options, oldversion, newversion) rcsdiff(file, directory, oldfile, newfile, diff, diff_type, options, oldversion, newversion, added, removed)
Functions should return 0 if successful. Arguments are strings, except where the name ends in _list which are arrays of strings, or _array, which are associative arrays (name=value).
The exceptions to this is
loginfo, which is
passed an array of structures containing
rev_new. Also the
functions, which are expected to return a string or
The script has access to a server object, called
Server, which contains the following
Trace(tracelevel,message) Warning(message) Error(message)
An example of all these functions is available in the cvsnt source
script.vbs in the
