Well, depends.  I have a line "update -dP" in my ~/.cvsrc.  :-)

That might be somewhat more efficient than what I use which is

set -e
echo "./"
cvs -q up -lP .
for F in `find . -mindepth 1 -maxdepth 1 -type d \! -name CVS`; do
        echo "$F/"
        cd $F
        cvs -q up -dP .
        cd ..

Heh.  Well as you can see I tend to use -dP all the time just out of
