Capture output of "cvs update" / tool to summarize changes?

Capture output of "cvs update" / tool to summarize changes?

I use the command-line client for CVS and find that when I type "cvs update" it is very hard to quickly see what files have been added or updated.  I recently found and setup CVSWeb to help browse the tree, but still find it hard to see whats changed when I update.  

Is there a utility/tool that can help with this?
If not, is there a way to capture the output in the command line into a text file so I can parse it myself?



RE: Capture output of "cvs update" / tool to summarize changes?

What OS are you using?  If you're on unix, you can redirect the output to a file like so:


command_here >output.log 2>&1
