Cvs Update Non Verbose Output

·
I don't like "cvs update" to print out which directories it updates, nor the files not under revision control. Following snippet go directly to the point : print the files that changed during last changeset


import pexpect

def update():
    child = pexpect.spawn('cvs update -dP')

    for line in child:
        if not line.startswith('?') and not line.startswith('cvs update'):
            print line[:-1]
