  tag
                     file ...

Assign a tag to a particular revision of a set of files. If the file already uses the tag for a different revision, cvs rtag will complain unless the -F option is used. This command does not refer to the sandbox file revisions (use cvs tag for that), so it can be run outside of a sandbox if desired.

The standard meanings of the common client options -D, -f, -l, -r, and -R apply. Additional options are:

-a

Search the attic for removed files containing the tag.

-b

Make it a branch tag.

-B

Allow movement or deletion of branch tags (used with -d or -F.)

-d

Delete the tag.

-F

Force. Move the tag from its current revision to the one specified.

-n

Don’t run any tag program from the modules file.
