Synopsis

add  
 [ -k kflag ]  
 [ -m message ]  
 file ...

Indicate that files/directories should be added to the repository. They are not actually added until they are committed via cvs commit. This command is also used to resurrect files that have been deleted with cvs remove.

The standard meaning of the common client option -k applies. The only additional option that can be used with the add command is -m message. This option is used to provide a description of the file (which appears in the output of the log command).
