Recursively adding files to Clearcase.

Recently I wanted to add a whole directory struture to Clearcase VOB and I was suprised to see that the Graphical Explorer did not have a option to recursively add an entire directory structure to source-control. Thankfully I found out a command line tool ("clearfsimport") using
which I could import/add all directories and files to the VOB.
The general usage of the command is :

clearfsimport [ –preview ] [ –follow ] [ –recurse ] [ –rmname ]
[–comment comment ] [ –mklabel label ] [ –nsetevent ] [ –identical ][ –master ] [ –unco ] source-name [ . . . ] target-VOB-directory

For more details RTFM or check out these links:

  1. RTFM! was too strong and unwanted here.

    also, it's the functionality is not there to prevent naive developers from adding randomly to source control.
