Mechanizing CVS

tomazos has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hey monks,

I've taken an interest in mechanizing interactions with CVS as I have just started a new job where the company's C++ codebase is a huge tangled mess spread out over two CVS servers with about 20 different BRANCHes and TAGs.

What Perl modules are available for playing with a CVS server? Have you had any expecience with using them? I've heard of and VCS-LibCVS.

Any other ideas? (Specifically I want to access the CVS "database" and do stuff like iterate over tags, branches, versions, logs, file handles and file data. Get statistical information. Create an overview, or a web view of the repository. Stuff like that.)

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    A Cpan-Search reveals there are more CVS perl modules than you'd thought. :-)

    Cheers, Sören
