I'm trying to use csup to get a single file at a certain date.
In particular, I'm trying to get /usr/ports/UPDATING.
I made a copy of /usr/share/examples/cvsup/ports-supfile and made the
# pick a server
# Date to sync to
# (jw) I use this so I can gradually update ports, instead of
# getting too many things changing at once causing upgrade pain
I then run the command:
csup -L2 -i 'UPDATING' path/to/my/supfile
I have also tried 'UPDATING*', '*UPDATING*', and '/UPDATING*' since
i'm not sure from the docs exactly what the -i pattern should look
However, none of those work.
What I want is to get the single file /usr/ports/UPDATING as of the
date given in the supfile.
What am I missing?
Am I going about it entirely wrong?
