If you do not have cvs write access and you want to make a change to a VTK file, the best way is to create a patch against the existing file.

Consider two files, File1 and File2. File2 is a ``new version of File1. To create the patch:

diff -uN File1 File2 > patch.txt|

If you want to create a patch of several files at the same time:

Consider two folders, Folder1 and Folder2. Folder2 is a ``new version of Folder1. To create the patch, the procedure is the same:

diff -uN Folder1 Folder2 > patch.txt|
