changing file name in cvs

Hi. Thanks in advance for your help.

If I already have files on the cvs and I just wanted to change the filename, i.e. make the first letter of a file capitalized as opposed to lower case, is there a way to do this without first removing and re-adding the file? Thanks.

removing and re-adding the file is the official way to do it, but you lose all your logs...

the bad, evil way to do it is to go into your repository, locate the file there and rename it there... the file will have a ,v extension, make sure you only change the part you want to! (without the ,v extension, who knows what will happen)... then you 'cvs update' and the filename you didn't want will be deleted and the new file will be added, except that it will have all the data from the old file....

an example of a file named test, in my cvs repository /cvs:

$ cd /cvs
$ mv test,v TEST,v
$ cd $HOME/cvs
$ cvs update

so on, so forth...
