Which docs?  The Cederqvist?  I kind of thought we had updated
that....

Same as U.
U = updated = the whole new file was sent to your machine to overwrite
old one.
P = patched = the diff was calculated on server, sent to your machine
and then applied.
The difference is not important for CVS user - that's just the matter of
efficiency

Cederqvist in Appendix A.18.2 states:
P <file>   like 'U', but the CVS server sends a patch instead of an
entire file.
           These two things accomplish the same thing.

I am fairly sure the current man pages (cvs.1) didn't have.  I was looking
at an
old version (1.9) of Cederqvist.

Thanks for the help.

No one is doing much work on the manpages these days (as the
disclaimer at the start of the manpage hints at).
