LKBEN10906: Howto update all clearcase streams from a cmd file at once. This can be used in autostart.


You would like to automatically update all your clearcase development streams at once.


Clearcase is a nice CVS (concurrent versioning system) but lacks this option.


The following batch program can be used to update all clearcase streams you are working with.


echo off
rem echo Wim
rem pause
cd \projects

rem we search all the streams a user has
rem cleartool lsview |find /i "%username%" > c:\temp\allstreams.txt
dir /B c:\projects > c:\temp\allstreams.txt

echo going through all the streams
echo -----------------------------

for /F "tokens=1,2,3 delims=.:, " %%a IN (c:\temp\allstreams.txt) do (
echo %%a
cleartool update -log c:\temp\%%a.log %%a

for /F "tokens=1,2,3 delims=.:, " %%a IN (c:\temp\allstreams.txt) do (
echo %%a
notepad c:\temp\%%a.log
