Generate the old keyword string, present in the working file just
before it was checked in. For example, for the `Revision'
keyword, generate the string `$Revision: 1.1 $' instead of
`$Revision: 5.7 $' if that is how the string appeared when the
file was checked in.
Like `-ko', but also inhibit conversion of line endings between
the canonical form in which they are stored in the repository
(linefeed only), and the form appropriate to the operating system
in use on the client. For systems, like unix, which use linefeed
only to terminate lines, this is very similar to `-ko'. For more
information on binary files, see *Note Binary files::. In CVS
version 1.12.2 and later `-kb', as set by `cvs add', `cvs admin',
or `cvs import' may not be overridden by a `-k' option specified
on the command line.
