The search I usually use first for cvsnt questions:


Has this as second link:


Which contains:

status options

    Display only a quick summary of the status of each file. Specifying a
second -q option reduces the output still further, by supressing output for
up to date files.

FWIW and IMO, Google is becoming worse and probably never was a good
replacement for a manual (where there is one, of course :)

Why don't you globally un-ignore .exe and .dll and other files you don't
normally have in your build tree? That should give you what you want.
